Liverpool Legends Returns
Mineral Area Council on the Arts and the City of Farmington are eager to announce the return of Liverpool Legends to the Centene Center, Saturday, May 8th, at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $19.50 and will be available at the Civic Center desk beginning April 1st.
A quick internet search will yield numerous tribute and cover bands of the English band from Liverpool. The Beatles are one of the most known 1960s counterculture and influential pop music groups in the world. Liverpool Legends stands out from all other cover bands. These four lads were hand-picked by Louise Harrison, sister of the late George Harrison of the Beatles. She proudly expressed, “Liverpool Legends are the very best four guys to portray the Beatles since the only four guys to play the Beatles were John, Paul, George, and Ringo!” Top television and film producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI, Pirates of The Caribbean, National Treasure) chose this band over all other Beatles Tribute bands to portray the band that changed the course of music and the world forever. He described them as “Phenomenal in every way… It is pure magic!” Even Paul McCartney raved to Kevin Mantegna, “Hey, that’s you! I could spot John out anywhere! You make a great John!”
Not long after the death of her brother, George, Louise Harrison spotted Marty Scott, the band’s founder, while performing in Chicago with another Beatles cover band. Marty shares some special “fan-boy” moments on the band’s website, liverpoollegends.com. Some highlights include meeting and having a real conversation with Paul McCartney while sitting between him and Louise on a couch. Another is being requested by Tony La Russa to hang out following a Cardinal game at Busch Stadium for which the band had opened. La Russa said, “I’m a huge Beatles fan and it’s great to see the Liverpool Legends bring them back to life! Now I’m a Liverpool Legends fan! I highly recommend them!”
Liverpool Legends has performed for sold out audiences of 20,000 people at Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City, and have performed in India, Israel, Ecuador, Chile and throughout the U.S. A highlight of performing in the U.S. has been to headline at the prestigious Rose Bowl four times with over 160,000 people in attendance. Liverpool Legends also recorded and produced all the Beatles songs for the album, “Fab Fan Memories” which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2012.
This performance will provide the full package! David Tanner (as Paul McCartney), Marty Scott (as George Harrison), Kevin Mantegna (as John Lennon), and Greg George (as Ringo Starr) have spent decades not only perfecting the sound and image of the Beatles, they have created a transporting show. You will feel like you stepped back in time as Liverpool Legends takes the stage and embodies the sound, the look, the mannerisms of the band of yesterday. Relive, reminisce, or experience for the first time a live Beatles concert!
“We are beyond excited to announce that we have the distinct honor of being the first to experience Liverpool Legends live in concert since the onset of the pandemic! After being forced to reschedule and patiently await a safer time of travel and performances, the long-awaited concert is finally happening!” remarked Scottye Adkins. The Liverpool Legends Theater in Branson, Missouri, will reopen in June, and the band will resume touring. Marty Scott states, “Many of our tour dates from 2020 are … moved to the fall [of 2021]. We were on tour in Ukraine when all this happened. It was a wonderful tour of the very best venues there, and we almost didn’t get out of there. They literally shut down all flights out of Ukraine one week after we got home. We’ve been at home sitting and waiting ever since.”
