2019 BeatleWeek rooftop concert rocks Liverpool
By Katie Hickox, Beatles News Liverpool correspondent
For a Beatles fan, attending a recreation of the Beatles last public rooftop concert from atop of a building in Liverpool is dream come true, and the recent Monday night concert last week on August 26 with perfect sunny weather was a once in a lifetime experience.
Jon Keats, Cavern City Tours Director and performer, led the audience in shouting "Hello Liverpool, We Love the Beatles" from the rooftop was sheer joy, along with taking in the fabulous performances by three different bands that started at 6:30 pm and ended sharply at the 10 pm curfew.
A picture tells a thousand words and the International BeatleWeek Rooftop concert from the top of the Shankly Hotel in downtown Liverpool says it all, with the landmark Royal Liver building in the background.
The bands playing atop the Shankly Hotel roof were
Rocks Off, a Rolling Stones tribute band,
Mark Hudson with McDonald's Farm, Mark is a former Ringo Starr record co-producer with a McCartney tribute band,
and The Cavern Club Beatles, featuring Tony Coburn, Paul Jones, Clark Gilmour, Barney Taylor and Chris Sharrock.
Lastly, hats off to Cavern City Tours for putting this once in a lifetime rooftop experience together. Home - International Beatle Week
Only those with wristbands that came with hotel plus and ticket only packages were admitted to this special concert, no single tickets were available as both hotel plus tickets and ticket only packages sold out earlier in May this year, setting a new record.
