I had an interesting e-mail from them. I laughed.

OFan, yes they are very good. Sleepy and I saw them in '98. The biggest kick I got out of it was when I raised my Beatles jacket up for them to see. "John" pointed me out to the others and they all gave me their nods and smiles as approval.
It wasn't that hard for them to see me, considering we had front row seats.

One other time I had a chance to see Beatlemania came in early '79. The publicity was tremendous. When the night of the show arrived, something happened. To this day, I don't know what it was, but the show was canceled. So, I'm glad I did get to see them when they finally did return.

Like bearkat, I,too, saw Beatlemania. It was way back in 1978 on Broadway. What a great show! Back in those days, my husband & I would go to the theater several times a year. It was affordable then. Broadway prices today are outrageous! (Sorry about the editorial!)

Was that tribute band still touring as recently at 1998? I can't believe it! Are they still in existence? (I know there were several companies.) There doesn't seem to be a trace of them in N.Y.

I wouldn't mind being in a tribute band, I think it would be a lot of fun. Especially if you got to go to America or somewhere!
But, all tribute bands seem to consist of 40 year-olds, so I guess I'd be too young.
On the other hand, it might be better like that.

I know the feeling LenMc. I'd love to start a tribute band but I only know a few musicians and only one of them likes the Beatles enough to go ahead with it. (You)

OFan, chances that the Beatlemania you saw in '78 and the Beatlemania I saw 20 years later are one in the same is slim. However, the four guys I saw did a splendid job that night as I'm sure the guys you saw were.
There could have been personel changes over the years, but the main goal was to recreate the magic the Beatles had back in the '60s. Personally, I think they did a fab job!

Oh, 'kat, I didn't mean to sound as if I thought it was the same group of performers still going at it 20 years later. I meant to ask if it was the same show! I loved it!

If anyone gets the chance, go to a Beatlefest in your area and see the battle of the Beatle bands. The one I saw had 35 bands each playing one song. Most were good. Some dressed like the early guys, one like Sgt Pepper, some looked liked Beatles, others acted like them doing Beatle accents. My favorite was a guy in the John position and dressed like the early Beatles and giving the emcee sort of a wise guy attitude just like you would imagine John would have.

If memory serves me, the original shows had large screens showing various scenes and pictures. Something that just caught my eye, the "Paul" back then was right-handed and the "Paul" I saw was left-handed.
If anyone can find it, get a copy of the LP, Beatlemania. It was released in 1978 on Arista Records. The catalog number is AL 8501.
The members were Joe Pecorino (John), Mitch Weissman (Paul), Leslie Fradkin (George) and Justin McNiell (Ringo).
