LONDON ROYAL ALBERT HALL - WEDNESDAY 2ND APRIL 2014.
The Bootleg Beatles' career began at a now long forgotten student's bash in Tiverton, Devon, UK on March 26th 1980 - almost ten years to the day since Paul McCartney announced the original's had split. Giving themselves six months to make or break it, the group signed up to the late Brian Epstein's NEMS agency. The new band's calendar slowly filled with a mix of all-night college balls and tough tours of the Working Men's Clubs of the North of England and Scotland.
Over the years The Bootleg Beatles have performed in front of many, many thousands of people including such notable luminaries as Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison, George Martin and Her Majesty, The Queen. They have set the standard for musical homage and Beatle-like scenes of hysteria have greeted the their note-perfect performances across the globe. It is the stunning authenticity of the Bootleg’s concerts, coupled with their musical credibility, that has seen the Bootleg Beatles play venues such as Wembley Stadium, Glastonbury, Earl’s Court & Knebworth, sharing the bill with the likes of Rod Stewart, Elton John, David Bowie, Bon Jovi, Simple Minds, Seal and Iggy Pop; and led to the invitation from Oasis to perform at their massive outdoor events. These performances, and an appearance on the cover of the NME, heralded the Bootleg Beatles' breakthrough to a new contemporary audience, something unheard of for a 'tribute' act.

We went as a group of freinds of a certain age and have to be honest they transported us back to a time we all loved and enjoyed. Music was great and atmosphere created was tremendous. WELL DONE TO THE WHOLE SHOW.

Having seen the real beatles in the 60s, I have to say this show was as near as possible to them, and almost as good. They had everyone dancing and singing along,and took three standing ovations, I would go to see them again anytime.
