Liverpool Legends Bring The Beatles To Life

Date

A night with the Liverpool Legends is more than a concert of songs written and performed by The Beatles.

The group opened a three-night gig at the Jabez Sanford Hardin Performing Arts Center in Columbia County Sept. 9. The event also marked the beginning of Augusta Amusements’ 2021-2022 season.

The Liverpool Legends last appeared in Columbia County in March 2018.

“Everybody loved them,” said Mike Deas of Augusta Amusements. “We signed a contract for them to come back in April 2019.”

That contract was supposed to bring the group back in March 2020, but the concert was pushed to July 2020 then to February 2021 and finally to September 2021 with three socially-distanced concert dates, Sept. 9, 10 and 11.

With narration by Louise Harrison, the sister of the late George Harrison, the concert provides a special glimpse into the lives of the Fab Four, Harrison in particular.

It takes a walk through the band’s fame in the United States beginning with the Ed Sullivan Show appearance in 1964 with costume changing and multimedia presentations to fill in the blanks.

The show opened with familiar songs such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” All My Loving,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Hard Day’s Night” and “Yesterday.”

Marty Scott, who started the band and sings as George Harrison, noted that the song “Yesterday” made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the most recorded song in history. More than 4,000 artists have recorded that song.

A costume change brought another video providing background to the 1965 concert at New York’s Shea Stadium.

That set let Ringo sing “Yellow Submarine” as machines caused bubbles to fill the air. Other songs included “Twist and Shout” “I Saw Her Standing There” and “In My Life.”

After a brief intermission and another costume change it was time for the “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” Magical Mystery Tour,” “Abbey Road” and “White Album.”

While not a Beatles song, the Liverpool Legends sang “Imagine.” Sept. 9 was the 50th anniversary of the albums release.
