MIDWEST CITY – Beatles tribute band Liverpool Legends will perform at 7:30 tonight at Rose State Performing Arts Theatre, Interstate 40 and Hudiburg Drive.
The tribute quartet bears an uncanny resemblance to the Fab Four and performs note-perfect renditions of
the beloved songs that launched the ’60s British Invasion, brought artistic credibility to rock ‘n’ roll and left an indelible mark on Western culture.
Louise Harrison, the older sister of the late Beatles guitarist/singer/songwriter George Harrison, hand-picked each of the four members of Liverpool Legends, starting with Marty Scott, who plays George. George Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001.
In a recent interview with The Oklahoman Entertainment Editor Gene Triplett, Louise Harrison talked about her baby brother and how an illness helped him earn his reputation as “the quiet Beatle” just before the band made its famed U.S. TV debut in 1964 on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
“The only reason he got that name was because he had strep throat and 104-degree temperature to start off with,” Louise Harrison told Gene. “The doctor said to him, ‘Save your throat. Save your voice and don’t talk.’ So he didn’t say very much at the news conferences.”
