LIVERPOOL LEGENDS TO PERFORM AT The World Famous CARNEGIE HALL
Saturday, March 5, 2016 – Louise Harrison, sister of the late Beatle George Harrison, presents an evening with Liverpool Legends as they recreate The Beatles’ historical concert at Carnegie Hall in 1964.
Carnegie Hall is known for being the most prestigious performance venue in the world. Following the Ed Sullivan show, The Beatles performed two shows at Carnegie Hall which defined Beatlemania and proved to be a watershed moment for the concert hall, paving the way for future rock and pop acts, such as Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, James Taylor, Chicago, etc., gracing its stage.
Liverpool Legends along with Louise Harrison will be promoting Help Keep Music Alive, an organization that raises money and awareness for school music and art departments around the country. As part of the program, Liverpool Legends will perform with top musicians from several selected schools from the New York City area and all profits from the event will go directly to the Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA) Youth Foundation.
Louise’s involvement in Liverpool Legends makes them the ONLY Beatles tribute band with a direct family link to the original Fab Four. “Each member of the group is so close to the originals that I often feel like I’m transported back in time with the lads. These are exactly the kind of fun-loving, quality musicians that my brother George would have loved to hang out with,” says Harrison.
Liverpool Legends were chosen over every other Beatles tribute band in the world by top television and film producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI, Pirates of The Caribbean, National Treasure) to portray the band that changed the course of music and the world forever. They received national attention when they re-created The Beatles famed 1966 concert at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Liverpool Legends headlined at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., in front of 68,000 people (an audience larger than The Beatles performance at Shea Stadium!) and recently toured the U.S. and abroad, culminating with a sold-out performance for 16,000 people at Arena Ciudad de Mexico City.
