The “Beatles” are Coming to SOPAC


Get your scream on — I mean the type where you’re a 17 year-old girl in 1963 seeing the Beatles for the first time on The Ed Sullivan Show. While it won’t exactly be the fabulous four, the leading tribute band, BritishMania, will recreate John, Paul, George and Ringo by presenting different eras of their musical rule, on September, 11, 8pm at SOPAC.

Complete with period costumes and hairstyles, the performance will include sets from the 1963 British Invasion/Ed Sullivan Show, (see video link above), The 1965 Help/Shea Stadium era,” “The Sgt. Pepper/Magical Mystery Tour ear,” and “The Let it Be/Abbey Road era.”

According to Jon Ferris, who plays John Lennon for BritishMania, the concert offers people a chance to relive what it was like to see the Beatles. “This is an exciting opportunity for Beatles fans to take a historical, fun-filled journey back to the 1960’s and experience the magic of the most successful band in the world.”
