The Mersey Beatles Sgt Pepper 50th Anniversary Show Live At the Hare & Hounds on June 4th

ABOVE: The Mersey Beatles Performing Sgt Pepper live

It was 50 years ago in June 1967 that The Beatles released what is regarded by many to be the greatest album of all time - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Now King's Heath Walk Of Fame are delighted to present The Mersey Beatles in a special intimate gig at the Hare & Hounds on Sunday 4 June to jointly celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the album's release and the 54th Anniversary of The Beatles third and final appearance in 1963 at the now sadly burnt down Ritz Ballroom next door to the Hare & Hounds on York Road.

Described by the British Beatles Fan Cub as 'the Best Beatles tribute band', The Mersey Beatles were all born and grew up in Liverpool. They were the resident band at the legendary Cavern Club for over 10 years and now regularly tour throughout Europe and the U.S.A. Earlier this year they returned to perform their Sgt Pepper show at Liverpool's prestigeous Epstein Theatre.

John Lennon's sister Julia Baird comparing them to other Beatles tribute bands said 'The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I've heard ... and I've heard them all'.

A British Beatles Fan Club review said 'The quality of the music was superb with each song reproduced in the original key with spot-on harmonies and perfect guitar solos that had the audience marvelling at the sheer quality of the talent on view'.

Joe Flannery, Brian Epstein's assistant, said 'When I saw them in The Cavern they perfectly recreated the atmosphere that the original Beatles produced. It was like listening to The Beatles again'.

In the first half of tonight's concert The Mersey Beatles will perform Sgt Pepper in it's entirety and in the second 20 of The Beatles greatest hits.

Doors open 7 pm.

Support to be announced.

First 50 Advance Discount tickets cost just £12.50 + booking fee from www.skiddle.com/e/12922152

Please note the Hare & Hounds is an upstairs standing and dancing venue just like the old Ritz Ballroom.
