THE BOOTLEG BEATLES WILL COME TOGETHER AT CAERPHILLY CASTLE
The world’s most famous Beatles Tribute band, The Bootleg Beatles will bring a stunning recreation of one of the greatest songbooks of all time to Caerphilly Castle on Friday the 15th of June 2018. Tickets go on general sale from Friday the 15th of December at 9am through Ticketmaster.co.uk, in person from Blackwood Miners’ Institute or by calling Ticketmaster Box Office on 0844 844 0444.
2018 sees a landmark for the band, with the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ self-titled double album (known universally as ‘The White Album’), which went 19x Platinum in the USA and has sold over 10.7 million copies worldwide. The album is regarded highly amongst fans and critics, having given us such classics as ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’, ‘Back in the U.S.S.R.’, ‘Dear Prudence’ and ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’. 1968 also saw the band release their mega-hit ‘Hey Jude’ which went straight to #1 on both sides of the Atlantic.
Formed from the original cast of London’s West End hit show ‘Beatlemania’, The Bootleg Beatles have become an institution in their own right with their note-perfect recreation of hits from every era of the world’s most famous band. Each tiny detail is meticulously covered from costumes to authentic period instruments; from the Liverpudlian banter to their inflection-perfect vocal mimicry. But it’s not only their sound that is so authentic; they also bear an uncanny resemblance to the Fab Four.
Also on the bill are the The Bowie Collective, performing arguably the most sonically accurate versions of David Bowie’s greatest records you will ever hear. From ‘Space Oddity’ to ‘Let’s Dance’, this is a treat for Bowie fanatics and the Bowie-Curious, as The Bowie Collective warmly invite you to join our celebration of this irreplaceable talent. It's quite simply the most authentic Bowie show on the planet.
