Adding to the excitement of the upcoming Beverley Folk Festival, taking place from the 19-21 June 2015, is the announcement of a pre-festival warm up, which will see the world’s most acclaimed tribute band Bootleg Beatles play for a special night of music on Thursday 18 June.
With six appearances at Glastonbury Festival, several world tours and many sell-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall already under their belt, the band will be taking to the stage at Beverley Racecourse.
Not only will it be the group’s first time in Beverley, it will be almost 20 years since they played in Hull, where they appeared at Hull City Hall in 1996.
The musical credibility and authenticity of the band has seen them play renowned venues, sharing the bill with the likes of Rod Stewart, Elton John, David Bowie, Bon Jovi and Simple Minds; and led to the invitation from Oasis to perform at their massive outdoor events.
The foursome will be bringing their orchestra to perform songs from Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band, managing to reproduce live on stage songs that the original band never actually performed live themselves.
This is a fantastic curtain-raiser for Beverley Folk Festival, and a rare opportunity such as this one to see the World’s top tribute band will mean tickets are expected to sell fast!
Those also purchasing a Weekend Ticket for the festival qualify for £10 discount off the combined price of both tickets. To book tickets for Bootleg Beatles and the festival weekend, visit the new website: www.beverleyfestival.com
