60 years ago today, 4 lads from Liverpool took to the iconic stage at Fairfield Halls to perform just 5 songs, 2 were even covers but their performance would go onto be become one of legend status. The songs in that set list were:
I Saw Her Standing There
Memphis, Tennessee (Chuck Berry Cover)
I'll Get You
She Loves You
Lucille (little Richard Cover)
Now fast forward 60 years and the world’s favourite Liverpool-born tribute to The Beatles are heading to Croydon to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Fab Four’s legendary shows in the South London town.
Just like the real thing, The Mersey Beatles hail from Liverpool where they were the resident Beatles tribute at the legendary Cavern Club for a decade – playing more than 600 times at the world-famous venue.
Since leaving The Cavern, the band – Mark Bloor (John), Steven Howard (Paul), Craig McGown (George) and Brian Ambrose (Ringo) – have toured the world many times over.
Looking ahead to their Croydon show on September 10, Steven said:“It’s going to be a brilliant night at Fairfield Halls. Not only are we celebrating 60 years of ‘Please Please Me’ topping the charts, but the diamond anniversary of The Beatles rocking Croydon – virtually 60 years to the day of our show!
Still time to purchase your tickets here to dance the night away celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Fab Four’s legendary shows in Croydon.
