Beatlemania set to take Cape Town by storm this October

Bringing to life on stage the major musical hits that made The Beatles one of the most successful and influential rock groups of all time, international hit tribute and stage show ‘Beatlemania On Tour’ is set to take over The Mother City later this month for a stint at the Artscape Theatre.

Starting on Wednesday, October 31, for a two-week run, ‘Beatlemania On Tour’ will bring a full cast of three Australian singers and one Scottish vocalist for the shows’ first performing run in Cape Town. The successful international stage show runs at the Artscape Opera House until Sunday, November 11.

‘Beatlemania On Tour’, which made its South African début in 2010, enjoyed a successful run at Emperors Palace Casino in Johannesburg at the start of 2018, as well as a recent stint at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment World in Durban in April this year.

Cape Town audiences can expect a “fresh musical experience” with state-of-the-art updates to the show’s production and lighting. Revamps to the show’s huge repertoire of replica Beatles costuming have also been made.

All of the Beatles’ biggest and most treasured hits from the 1960s rock era will be performed live on stage – in their original key and on replica Beatles instruments – with unseen attention to detail creating the sincerest Beatles sound around.

The cast includes singers Joe Kane (as Paul McCartney), Zac Coombs (as John Lennon), Brent McMullen (as George Harrison) and Ben Harper (as Ringo).

Audiences can expect to see classic Beatles hits such as ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’, ‘All My Loving’, ‘Please Please Me’, ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’, ‘She Loves You’, ‘Day Tripper’, ‘Nowhere Man’, ‘Help!’, ‘Yellow Submarine’, ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and Hey Jude’ performed throughout the two-hour spectacular.

“We have never been to Cape Town with the show before so we are all looking forward to experiencing Cape Town and its audiences. Fans can expect to see ten years of musical history from the finest pop band of all time condensed into two hours of high-octane, rock & roll fun,” says lead singer Joe Kane.

With previous sold-out shows across the US, Canada, Dubai, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand under its belt, the production is looking to uphold its reputation as one of the world’s best Beatles tributes.

* Tickets can be purchased via Computicket and are priced at R190 to R390 each.
