"A brilliant Beatles Show, superb musicians, great production." - Joe Duffy (RTÉ Radio Presenter)
"Without a time machine, this is as close as you'll get to the real thing." - Irish Independent
"The vocal resemblance is uncanny." - Sir George Martin (Beatles Producer)
The attention to detail on this production doesn't end with the delivery of the great songs, the band also partake in the witty banter for which The Beatles were equally famous. The detail is followed through to the look of the show, the start of which finds them in exact replica velvet collared suits made famous on the Ed Sullivan Show to 73 million viewers in 1964, complete with mop-tops. At the mid-way stage of the performance, the band reappear dressed in the Sgt. Pepper outfits as worn by The Beatles on the cover of their groundbreaking 1967 album. In the final stage of the show, all four members appear on stage dressed as their alter-egos with longer hair circa White Album / Abbey Road, bringing the show to a powerful climax. Get Back: The Story of The Beatles brings all the joys of Beatledom to a whole new generation and allows first generation fans to relive the music that changed our lives forever. The Classic Beatles remain the only Beatles tribute in the world to have worked with famed Beatles producer Sir George Martin, as well as being requested to perform for Queen Elizabeth II in 2004! They even had her up dancing for their entire set, not too bad seeing as she's met the real ones! Having begun modestly in Dublin in 1990 (as The Quarrymen), so popular was the band's appeal by 1994 that they were invited to play live in front of more than 60,000 people in Dublin's Phoenix Park as part of a welcome home for Ireland's returning World Cup soccer heroes. A typical Classic Beatles show consists of "two hours of the greatest songs in the Beatles' songbook performed with perfection and affection.
