Lights, Action, Beatles! In an instant, you are transported - back to a time of John, Paul, George & Ringo. Back to when Beatlemania first began. From Twist & Shout to Get Back.
Welcome to THE BEATELS - the Beatles tribute group that has been wowing audiences around the world with their fab recreation of The Beatles live on stage since 1996!
The Beatles are one of the most popular groups of all time! Their music is known and loved all around the world, & their songs continue to inspire and thrill generations of music-lovers. THE BEATELS perform songs from the entire musical career of The Beatles, from Please Please Me to Let It Be - and more! Their show features a wide selection of hits, as well as some special surprises!
They use a variety of costumes, but they generally perform a 2-set show, featuring an early period Black & White set (1962-1965) and a later period Psychedelic set (1966-1970), using authentic Beatle instruments, just like the ones the Beatles used to play their songs.
THE BEATELS have an extensive collection of authentic 1960's instruments, which is one of the reasons why they can capture the sound of The Beatles so accurately.
The thing that sets this group apart from the others the attention to details and the quality of the musicianship. Lush, live, 4-part harmonies, with note-for-note performances of Beatles recordings - this group has to be seen to be believed.
Accents that get Scousers swearing "they must come from England", vocals that sound just like the real thing, & the closest John Lennon lookalike in Australia, makes THE BEATELS not only one of the most professional, but also one of the most authentic tributes acts in the world today!
Australia gets many tourists from Liverpool - the birthplace of The Beatles. Invariably, they comment at the end of shows that THE BEATELS are more realistic than even the supposed top Beatle tributes from England. They should know!
Bruce Coble, who plays John, has been performing Beatles music to audiences around the world for 25 years, & other members of the group have been performing Beatles music together onstage for over 15 years, making THE BEATELS one of the most experienced and professional Beatles tributes in the world!
Special events, festivals, corporate functions - even weddings and birthdays - THE BEATELS are a favourite for events organisers looking for a versatile & classy show! Because they have such a huge repertoire of songs, they can tailor their set to whatever is needed, whether it is a high energy party, or a captivating and classy dinner show. They have shared the stage with a range of high profile performers, such as Olivia Newton-John, Russell Morris, John Paul Young, Pete Best, Herman's Hermits, The Platters, The Drifters, Normie Rowe, Chubby Checker, Little Patti, Marty Rhone, Barry Crocker - the list goes on. THE BEATELS are experienced performers who know how to put on a show!
THE BEATELS regularly perform at major international events and these days are more often than not playing outside of Australia. In the last few years, they have been regular visitors to Singapore and Malaysia, with other shows in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, and of course, The Cavern Club in Liverpool - the very place where Beatlemania began!
