DeKalb, IL – Liverpool Legends are four incredibly talented musicians and actors hand-picked by Louise Harrison- sister of the late George Harrison of the The Beatles. Louise’s involvement in Liverpool Legends makes them the ONLY Beatles Tribute Band with a direct family link to the original Fab Four. They will take the stage at the Egyptian Theatre in Downtown DeKalb Saturday, November 4 at 7:30 PM.
“Each member of the group is so close to the originals that I often feel like I’m transported back in time with the lads. These are exactly the kind of fun loving quality musicians that my brother George would have loved to hang out with,” says Harrison.
Liverpool Legends along with Louise Harrison were nominated for a Grammy Award for their work on “Fab Fan Memories” – a Beatles Bond.
2017 has been a very exciting year for the group as they toured The U.S. and internationally, culminating with a sold out performance for over 18,000 people at Arena Ciudad De Mexico, as well as sold out performances in India, Israel and Ecuador.
