Liverpool Legends to return to WHS

The Liverpool Legends are coming back to Washington this spring. The Beatles tribute band sold out the Washington High School auditorium last May and will have a return engagement on March 14. “The community was begging for us to bring them back,” said President of the Washington Band Boosters Ken Showalter. “They sold out the auditorium last year and they were phenomenal in every way.”

The Liverpool Legends have been nominated for a Grammy. They look and sound like the Beatles and were hand picked by the late George Harrison’s sister, Louise. They have played venues ranging from the WHS auditorium to Carnegie Hall.

“This is a fundraiser for the band program,” said Showalter. “This also is a really fun thing for the band kids. They get to play some music with a professional band and it’s exciting to see how they react to it.”

Mostly though the Liverpool Legends are a good show. “They play songs from the entire Beatles career, including some of their solo work,” said Showalter. “They sound like them and use the same arrangements.”

The Liverpool Legends were named the top act in Branson, Miss., last year and the band boosters believe the community will be glad to have them back. “We sold out all 700 seats last year,” said Showalter. “It’s a very family friendly show and even people who may not have been fans of the Beatles walked away from their performance last year as new fans.”

The announcement of the performance has already begun to generate a lot of interest. “We’re already getting requests for tickets from all over the Midwest,” said Showalter. “For people here in town, it is chance to see a good professional show without having to travel out of town. All you have to do is get a ticket and show up and you’ll be entertained.”

Tickets will be $30 in advance and $35 at the door. They go on sale Monday at the New End Zone, 308 E. Nat’l Hwy.
