On Saturday August 30, Beatle-mania will hit the town of Tewkesbury as The Cavern Beatles present a night of rollicking rock ‘n’ roll dedicated to capturing the feel of Starr, McCartney, Lennon, and Harrison.
During a promotion at Abbey Road Studios in October 1992, The Cavern Beatles were used in a film made in conjunction with Apple to celebrate 30 years since the release of the ‘Love Me Do’ single, and in 2001 the group sang back up for Paul McCartney in New York City.
The Cavern Beatles draw on an extensive repertoire of hits and album tracks to recreate the Fab Four’s influential sound with passion and attention to detail.
