LIVERPOOL

Beat the Meetles has just returned from Liverpool where they performed at the “The Cavern Club” and at The Strawberry Fields Garden Party. “The most famous club in the world” is what the Cavern Club is called – the place where Brian Epstein discovered the Fab Four, and in the last week of August this club was the centre of the yearly Beatle Week.

Tribute bands from all over the world travels in this particular week to Liverpool and Beat The Meetles is the only band ever from Denmark to be invited to participate at this much-coveted festival.

The band repertoire normally covers the full Beatle catalogue, but at the concerts in Liverpool the band decided to concentrate on the material up to Rubber Soul from 1965. Beat The Meetles makes it a virtue to give the audience an complete illusion of being at a Beatles concert, and therefore amps, drums, guitars are original and exactly like the ones the Beatles used, and in Liverpool the band performed dressed up in Shea Stadium jackets with drainpipe black trousers, and Cuban heel Beatles boots.

At the outdoor concert at Strawberry Fields, Saturday afternoon, when guitars were made ready in stands to be carried to the stage, it became a real draw when Beatle-freaks from all over the world wanted to get a photo of the collection. Especially if the photo could include one of the Fab Four it made the audience real exited. The band was also interviewed by Japanese television who wanted to know more about the bands concerts and the impressive guitar collection.

But the Cavern Club was the highlight of the tour, and the concert Saturday night became a tour de force in a club with the humidity close to 100 %. It is with veneration and with a certain historical whirr of wings you enter the stage, but the illusions worked, and when Beat The Meetles entered the famous stage the girls started to scream and behave as in 1963.

During the day the band used their spare-time to visit a number of Beatles related sights, hereunder the Liverpool Cathedral, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, even got time to enter a Roll Royce all dressed up in Shea Uniforms for the joy for the thousands of tourist that visited the festival.

Helen (cousin of Colin Hanton – drummer from John Lennon’s original Quarrymen) wrote to the band:
“I saw your gig at Strawberry Fields….Wow you guys are loud! I was really impressed by your performance – you’re a real rockin’ group!”
