Beatlemania celebrates the Fab Four at The Platform

A mesmerising and inspirational show for all fans of the Fab Four comes to The Platform this weekend, with an authentic performance that celebrates possibly the most successful and endearing act in the history of popular music.

The Beatles played Morecambe twice, on 29th August 1962 and 18th January 1963, at The Floral Hall - a venue that is now but a memory, but which, in its heyday, saw live bands playing on seven mornings and seven nights a week in summer, and four in winter.

Very little seems to be remembered about The Beatles' performances today, although rare pictures of one of their appearances have been sold at London auction house Bonhams.

Beatlemania is a show captures the passion, energy and excitement of those early shows with a band regarded as one of the world’s foremost Beatles’ tribute acts.
Beatlemania recreates the legendary live performances of The Beatles from their ‘moptop’ roots, through the psychedelia of Sergeant Pepper then on to the final years of Abbey Road and Let It Be.

Beatlemania consists of Paul McDonough as John Lennon, David Peterson as Paul McCartney, Rich Jevons as George Harrison and Dave Gee as Ringo Starr, and the band has performed for stars such as David and Victoria Beckham, Sir Richard Branson and Madonna.

This line-up, with more than 20 years international experience, has firmly established Beatlemania as the band for Beatles fans to witness,performing to thousands of people each year.

This unique and captivating show presents an opportunity to experience the phenomenon of Beatlemania in a town where The Beatles first started to gain popular acclaim.
