THIS EVENT IS LOCATED AT THE ROYAL LIVERPOOL PHILHARMONIC HALL
The Cavern Club opened its doors on 16 January 1957 and this special show celebrates the 60th anniversary of ‘The Most Famous Club In The World’.
Undoubtedly, without the 292 gigs The Beatles played here between February 1961 and August 1963, The Cavern’s story would be a very different one. But they did play those 292 gigs and The Cavern was firmly on the world’s musical map.
From this period, other artists exploded on to the musical scene; Gerry & the Pacemakers, The Searchers, The Hollies, Billy J Kramer, Cilla Black and many more. Everyone wanted to play this iconic venue, and they did; The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Ben E King, Rod Stewart, Status Quo, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Queen.
Today The Cavern is a thriving live music venue, still attracting the big names. Artists to have played here in more recent years include; Oasis, Travis, Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Jessie J, Jake Bugg, Joe Bonamassa and of course, in 1999, the return of Sir Paul McCartney.
This specially commissioned show is presented by The Overtures, the UK’s premiere 60s band and no strangers to Liverpool Philharmonic
60 YEARS …THE BEAT GOES ON
