What sheer joy it is to be listening to great Beatles classics with thousands of people in the streets of Liverpool where the audience participates in the closing verses of Hey Jude by everyone clapping with arms raised overhead. The audience was a mixed crowd of young people, children, parents and older fans.
The Beatles tribute band "The Greets" based in Argentina, that I told you about in my previous Beatles News Blog post, played classic Beatles songs to an enthusiastic crowd at the sound stage located in Derby Square which features a Liverpool landmark of a statue of Queen Victoria in the background. This sound stage, one of six scattered in Liverpool's city center, featured bands playing mostly Beatles music at Sunday's Mathew Street Festival.
Not every band did just Beatles classics, an American band from Seattle in the state of Washington, AppleJam, played a mix of Wings music but also tried playing a few rarities of songs written by Lennon-McCartney but never recorded or were recorded by other bands.
Only in Liverpool, birthplace of the Beatles. Check out what's happening on the last day of the Mathew Street Festival.
