Tony Hadley, The Streets, Cream Classical Ibiza, Gary Numan, Embrace, KT Tunstall, Tom Grennan, Lightning Seeds, The Zutons and Beverley Knight are among the headliners already confirmed for the Liverpool series.
And music fans are in for a hit-packed treat as The Mersey Beatles bring their famed live show – which takes audiences on a magical trip through the iconic music of the greatest band of all time – to the Mersey’s world-famous docklands on July 26 (21:00 BST).
Formed in Liverpool in 1999, The Mersey Beatles – Mark Bloor (John), Steven Howard (Paul), Craig McGown (George), Brian Ambrose (Ringo) and Tony Cook (keys/percussion) – were the resident Beatles’ band at the legendary Cavern Club between 2002-2012 – clocking up more than 600 gigs.
Since leaving The Cavern, the band has toured the world many times over – winning legions of fans for their faithful recreation of The Beatles’ unmistakable Liverpool-born sound.
Steven said: “We cannot wait for July 26 – it’s going to be an incredibly special night on the banks of the River Mersey here in our home city.
“Like all bands we saw all our touring plans for 2020 – which included shows across Europe, America and Australia – halted by the Covid-19 pandemic. ‘Utilita Live From The Drive In’ is a brilliant concept by Live Nation and we are thrilled to be part of it.
“It’s going to be so great to get out there on a stage again and play for an audience. This show is going to be a hit-packed celebration of the greatest band of all-time – and played where it all began right here in Liverpool. It’s going to be amazing!”
