What the Media says:
''The Counterfeit Beatles spread thrills of enthusiasm with their on stage revival of the golden age of the Beatles - TV5 NATIONAL.
At the Theatre Vergina everyone will rock to the rhythm of Beatlemania! 'Fantastic!' was the one word used by the BBC World News to describe the show! And 'for 30 nights only - the hearts of the audience of the Theatre Vergina will beat to the rhythm of the greatest band of all time!' BBC WORLD
The Japan Fuji Rock Festival boasts an artist line-up so diverse; it puts many US and European festivals to shame. For three days in July 2003 - surrounded by the verdant green mountains of Niigata Prefecture - the world's most innovative Beatles tribute band held court to an international crowd of more than 80 -000. The main stage featured appearances by the Counterfeit Beatles - Coldplay - Elvis Costello - Steve Winwood - Primal Scream - and Bjork. The Counterfeit Beatles appeared 5 times throughout the festival - opening on the red marquee stage to a crowd of 10 -000 and on the last day headlining the green stage with Elvis Costello and Steve Winwood - to a crowd of 80 -000. This is a dream come true and a massive reward for everyone in and associated with the band!
All the equipment used by the band is the exact replica of the original fab 4's gear down to the finest detail.
