The Fab Fourever: As The Beatles

The timeline in recent years has seen The Fab Fourever representing Canada at International BeatleWeek in Liverpool, England, starting in 2015; the following year, venturing to Hong Kong in 2016; a year later, extensively touring Canada mainly performing in soft seat theatres, culminating in collaboration shows with several touring acts such as “The Buddy Holly Show,” and top American Stones Tribute “Satisfaction,” leading to prestigious venues across the country. During that year (2017), besides rigorous touring, The Fabs even took time to go explore faraway locations like playing in the Centre of Canada, Baker Lake, Inuvik!; in 2018 the band was busy performing for theatres, casinos, galas and festivals, in addition to making special appearances in venues like The Air Canada Centre in Toronto before 15,000 people, besides making time to perform with a 40 piece Symphony Orchestra. In August 2018, the guys returned  to Liverpool, where they performed 10 ‘Sold Out’ shows, venues including the World Famous Cavern Club, plus The Adelphi Hotel and Locarno Ballrooms, the very stages where The Beatles played as they grew to become a world class musical inspiration.

More exciting news encircled the guys as 2018 transitioned to 2019. The call was for 8 days of touring in the Caribbean over New Year’s on the Norwegian “Bliss” Cruise where the band presented a celebration of "The Music of The Beatles."

In 2019, the band performed in Asia, in March-April the guys headed down to South America for 8 days via the Panama Canal. During the summer, The Fabs returned to Liverpool UK where they again impressed the critical Cavern audiences.

For 2020, the future certainly looked bright with multiple theatre dates scheduled for Canada, with a new push to begin performing along the American West Coast..then, then came COVID 19 and the world quickly came to a standstill. Now with the passage of time, it's 2022 and hopefully we're all back on the move again.

Enjoy the show!
