The Bootleg Beatles have announced their 2018- 19 tour of the UK starting this December, which will feature a special segment marking the 50th anniversary of the iconic White Album. The band, along with their renowned string and brass ensemble, will visit 17 cities.
As ever, the band will perform favourites from the whole Beatles’ catalogue but will also bring a special focus onto some key tracks from the White Album, playing many of them for the very first time. As well as some of the best-known classics, the band will also be taking on more obscure tracks in an attempt to bring to life the breadth and depth of this incredible LP.
The White Album is in many ways a counterpoint to Sgt. Pepper, which The Bootleg Beatles toured to huge acclaim last year with the 80 piece Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. The White Album was created with a sparser sonic palette that saw song arrangements significantly stripped back and also saw the band working independently of each other in their own creative niches.
Formed from the original cast of London’s West End hit show Beatlemania, The Bootleg Beatles have become an institution in their own right with their note-perfect recreation of hits from every era of the world’s most famous songbook.
Since their inception in 1980 the band have performed hundreds of gigs across the globe, earning themselves an amazing reputation along the way. Every tiny detail is meticulously covered from costumes to authentic period instruments. But it’s not only their sound that is so authentic as they also bear an uncanny resemblance to the fab four.
