THE Bootleg Beatles are back in Bradford next month, taking a musical journey through the Fab Four’s catalogue of hits, and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the seminal Abbey Road album.

Since forming in 1980, the tribute band have gained an army of fans, with George Martin himself describing their act as “A terrific show”.

Formed from the original cast of West End 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.

Anyone who has seen them in concert will know that every detail is meticulously covered - from costumes to authentic period instruments, from the banter to the vocal mimicry.

Their lively show features, in the first half, the timeless songs from across every phase of the band’s history, while the second half of the show presents a special segment marking the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road - the 11th studio album by the Beatles, released in September 1969.

Hailed by many as the band’s greatest ever album, Abbey Road features songs like Come Together, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, Octopus’s Garden and Here Comes The Sun.

The Bootleg Beatles are at St George’s Hall on Friday, December 6.
