Liverpool Royal Liverpool philharmonic Hall. on February 27 2016
At the Royal Philharmonic in Liverpool. Absolutely amazing. John powers vocals with the Orchestra as a back drop. The crowd blew the roof off in recognition of the sheer talent of the fab four. The bass of Jay, the amazing guitar skills of skin especially in history. And the sensational drumming solo in the finale by Keith which was even joined back on stage by Jp and greeted with a round of applause by him. This was the second of a sell out show and I felt honoured to be at this one. The stranger next to me put her arms around me in appreciation and joy as 'Alright ' saw the audience arise again. A new song was tested out too, name unknown 'What you do to me?'. Sounded fantastic. Cannot talk highly enough of this band.
