Emmy-Winning Beatles Tribute Kicks Off FL Tour in Tampa Bay
By: The Fab Four
Additional venues slated to host the world-class stage show include Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, November 22nd; Plaza LIVE Orlando on Saturday, the 23rd; and Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Center in Ft. Myers on Sunday, the 24th. Florida Beatle fans are invited to catch these performances, which will feature stunning recreations of Beatles classics from every era of the iconic band's career.
Widely known for their dynamic stage presence and precise attention to detail, The Fab Four have earned many accolades and awards from industry professionals during their two-decades-
As band founder and original "Lennon," Ron McNeil, has said: "We've gone above and beyond on a lot of this material because a lot of it (the Beatles) didn't play live. I think that's what makes our group special: all the little attention to the tiny, tiny details that make up the show. It makes people think, 'Wow, I'm seeing and hearing the Beatles.'"
The Fab Four have also headlined International Beatleweek in Liverpool, England, appearing at the festival in 2004, 2008, 2011, and 2019.
Beatles-related projects the band has been involved in include providing motion capture performances for The Beatles: Rock Band music video game, the Cirque du Soleil Beatles LOVE Show, and Robert Zemeckis's planned 2010 remake of The Beatles' Yellow Submarine animated film (for which the band did the mo-cap for 16 Beatles songs before Disney pulled the plug on the project).
The group also provided the soundtrack (consisting of three Beatles songs: "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Please Please Me," and "Kansas City") for the 2000 CBS TV movie, The Linda McCartney Story. In addition, The Fab Four were recruited by Eric Idle (of Monty Python fame) to play Idle's and Neil Innes's 1975 Beatles parody group, The Rutles, in Idle's Rutlemania, a set of shows the band performed in Los Angeles and New York in 2007 in celebration of The Rutles' 30th anniversary.
