Attention to detail is a key for any tribute band, as the performers in Beatleshow are well aware. It’s especially important when you’re paying homage to the most beloved band of all time, as the original Fab Four created such an iconic image that any homage to such mythic, cultural giants could easily go awry.
But this Beatles tribute band pulls off the daunting challenge of mimicking the music legends with flying colors. The versatile group performs the hit songs you want to hear from all three eras of the band’s career, from their Liverpool roots and first single Love Me Do in the early 1960’s, through the Let it Be days of the 70’s— and they do it all with such vocal precision and charisma you’ll believe that you’re watching the original band.
It’s not just the music that makes the group one of the best Beatles tribute acts in Las Vegas. At one point an Ed Sullivan impersonator takes the stage to re-enact the earth shattering moment in television history when the original Beatles made their first American TV appearance. The television set curtain rises to reveal our Vegas tribute band, ready to Twist and Shout down memory lane.
The tribute act pulls off the visual look of all the eras of the legendary band’s career as well, from the dark suits, white shirts and skinny ties of the Yesterday era to the colorfully psychedelic costumes of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band era. The cast of the Beatleshow plays on authentic musical instruments and amps from the time period as well, because the look and style is just as important as the sound in this Beatles Las Vegas tribute show as is the energy and feel. In fact, you just might convince yourself you’re experiencing the original British invasion, whether for the first time or the second, in a show geared to appeal to everyone from die hard fanatics to young audiences completely new to the Rock ‘n’ Roll legends.
