In 1963 a little-known quartet from Liverpool turned the world of music and fashion on its head, creating a cultural revolution that left a lasting legacy still admired and respected 50 years on.
Paying tribute to the mania caused by mop-haired John, Paul, George and Ringo, the show All You Need Is Love will transport audiences back to the unforgettable sound of The Beatles and the ‘swinging’ 60’s until Saturday, 17 March at the GrandWest Roxy Revue Bar, Wednesday through to Saturday.
The group shook their generation, threatening conservatism to its core and unleashing beatle-mania. Today they are regarded as the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed band.
Setting the tone for the evening, Director Cedric Vandenschrik uses original footage to recreate the public hysteria of the time, such as performances on the Ed Sullivan show and the famous meeting with Bob Dylan. Fans can expect to hear all the band’s best loved hits such as Help, Lucy in the sky with diamonds, I wanna hold your Hand, Ticket to Ride, Sgt Peppers, Hey Jude, Back in the USSR, Yellow Submarine and many more.
Taking the audience on this Magical Mystery Tour are vocalist and guitarist Cedric Vandenschrik, vocalist Chad Zerf, guitarist Aldert du Toit, drummer Adam Coolsaet, bassist Rob Nel and keyboardist Tracy Johannes. Adding a pretty touch and a different interpretation to the music will be Candice Malander-Thorne.
Doors open at 20h00 and the curtain rises at 20h30. Tickets are available from Computicket at R67.
