Fifty years after the Beatles stopped touring; their music remains popular with people of all ages who grew up with the legendary British group that changed pop music forever. Along with their children and grandchildren they are all keen to be part of real live Beatles experience.
35 years after they formed, The Beatnix, regarded as the best Beatles tribute show in Australia are taking people back to Beatlemania.
Founder, Tony Dean who formed the group in Perth in 1980 eight months before John Lennon was fatally shot, said the recent release of a Beatles remastered DVD and now The Beatles being available on iTunes had also fuelled interest in live performances of Beatles music.
"People can't get enough of the authentic Beatles sound, they never go out of style" Dean said. "So many people who loved them in their heyday did not get to see them perform so they love dancing along as we belt out their favourite tunes in true Beatles style along with the costumes and on-stage quips typical of the Fab Four"
