The Fab Beatles, the first ever concert in Asia to be held in Sri Lanka on September 18 will be presented by Mystere Entertainment Lanka in collaboration with the Sunday Observer, Sri Lanka’s leading newspaper with the highest circulation and Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel.
The UK’s Beatles tribute band formed in 1991 has gained recognition as one of the most sought-after bands in the world. The foursome has performed concerts all over the UK and are the craze in Europe, Middle East and America. Chosen by the BBC as ‘The Best’ and commissioned by EMI to promote the ‘Beatles1’ CD, the Fab Beatles are a good outfit bringing the best of the Beatles.
Their music is as near to the original Beatles’ sound. The members use only authentic instruments and costumes and can now boast to have the very drum-kit Ringo used on The Beatles 1964 American tour no-less! Unlike other acts, The Fab Beatles use no other musicians or tape machines during their shows.
Every instrument is played completely ‘live’ by them. Their shows cover everything that the Beatles trilogy sounds like. From the Cavern/ Hamburg/Mop-Top period; through to Rubber Soul/Revolver; Sgt. Pepper’s and the Magical Mystery Tour, finishing with the songs from Abbey Road and Let It Be albums.
The Fab Beatles are a popular band at wedding receptions in the UK and the feedback they have received from their clients are astounding and memorable.
