CENTRESTAGE’S ‘THE BEATLES – FOREVER FAB’ TRIBUTE BACK AT OLD GREY FOR TWO NIGHTS ONLY
**2 EXTRA SHOWS ADDED - 4 & 5 MARCH**
Centrestage’s ‘The Beatles – Forever Fab’ tribute show is back at Old Grey in Port Elizabeth for two nights only on 26 and 27 February 2016, and 2 additional shows on Friday 04 March & Saturday 05 March! This show is a sellout!!!
The show features Port Elizabeth’s very own popular fabulous foursome – Alan Kozak as John Lennon, Wayne Kallis as Paul McCartney, Andrew Warneke as George Harrison and the inimitable Gino Fabbri as Ringo Starr – with Fenlin Pitie on keyboards.
The first half of the show features the raw energy of the early Beatles club performances, which are majestically replicated by the superb group of Centrestage entertainers/musicians in such a way that the frenetic live performance authenticity which drove the late 1950’s/early 1960’s fans into a frenzy, is recreated.
Songs such as Mr Postman, Twist and Shout, I Want to Hold Your Hand, From Me to You, I Saw Her Standing There, Help, Love Me Do, Paperback Writer, 8 Days a Week and Can’t Buy Me Love amongst others are faithfully reproduced and imbued with the trademark early-day naive Beatles personalities and wry humour.
As the Beatles matured, their music changed to incorporate ground-breaking new sounds and experimental, often drug inspired, influences of the time. Trippy songs like Eleanor Rigby, All You Need is Love, Come Together, Get Back, Back in the USSR, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and Magical Mystery Tour will demonstrate the strong psychedelic feel in this segment.
Much loved sing-along Beatles classics such as Yellow Submarine, Obla Di Obla Da, Revolution and Hey Jude are guaranteed to get the audience participating at the top of their voices!
The big Beatles ballads such as Let It Be, The Long and Yesterday are also included in the line-up which features no less than 38 Beatles classics.
Forever Fab features the ultimate feel-good song-book and promises a roller-coaster evening of face-paced entertainment in what has become known as ‘the Centrestage tradition’.
The show starts at 20:00 and tickets costing R140 per person or R130 per person when booking eight tickets or more can be booked at Computicket or by calling Wendy on 082 661 6921
