Beatlemania tour pays tribute to the Fab Four

Beatlemania On Tour is at Nanaimo’s Port Theatre Monday (July 10)

The Beatles are regarded as one of the most influential rock groups of their era.

Audience members can relive the heyday of the group’s music during the Beatlemania On Tour tribute show at Nanaimo’s Port Theatre Monday (July 10) at 7 p.m.

The tribute show consists of Cameron Charters, who stars as Paul McCartney; Zac Coombs, who stars as John Lennon; Brent McMullen, as George Harrison, and Ben Harper as Ringo Starr.

“There is so much detail to get right for a show of this calibre, aside from getting the music spot on, we’re expected to nail the characters, voices and little movements,” said Charters in a press release. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth it when you see the end result and know that real Beatles’ fans will appreciate it.”

For Harper, music has been a huge influence in his life. He joined his school’s drum band when he was nine and started to seek other extra curricular activities to expand his knowledge.

Harper became intrigued by Ringo Starr’s drumming. The song Come Together particularly caught his attention.”He became instantly hooked on the band when he discovered the Sgt. Pepper’s album,” according to the group’s press release. He later started researching Starr’s drumming style and joined the Beatlemania tour.

Tickets for Beatlemania On Tour are $59, $30 for children or $54 for groups of six or more available in advance by calling 250-754-8550 or by visiting www.porttheatre.com.
