Most Authentic Beatles Tribute Band in World Live
for Immediate Release
10 February 2006
Most Authentic Beatles Tribute Band in the World – Beatlemaniacs – Live at SKYCITY (24 – 26 March 2006)
Guest Appearance by
Roy Orbison Performed by Barry Steele
Direct from sell-out performances internationally (including the famous ‘Cavern Club’ where Beatlemania began), The Beatlemanics will perform for three nights only at SKYCITY Theatre (March 24 – 26 at 8pm).
Renowned for being so authentic you’ll believe they’re the real thing – “right down to the instruments and the stitching on their winklepicker shoes,” says event promoter, Robbie Robson.
The Fab four that make up The Beatlemaniacs have won accolades world over for being the finest and most authentic Beatles Tribute Band in the world.
In addition, the show includes a special performance by supporting guest artist Roy Orbison, performed by Barry Steele, performing songs of the “Big O” to warm up the crowd (just as was the case in the early days of the Beatles live performances). Steele also bears an unbelievably striking resemblance to the 60s star performing exactly as Orbison did – in the same key, same register and same velvet tones. Steele is himself working on a New Zealand tour in 2007.
The Beatlemaniacs have devoted themselves to giving their audiences an opportunity to relive those “Halcyon” days again by studying The Beatles’ every move, the correct phrasing of all the lyrics, their clothes, their style and their instruments down to the very last detail.
