The Lynne and McCartney Story

The Lynne and McCartney Story

Details

ELO Beatles Beyond are no ordinary tribute band. Fronted by top Jeff Lynne and Paul McCartney soundalikes, the band prides itself on performing the greatest hits of ELO, The Beatles, Wings and more as they were intended to sound. The theatre show, “THE LYNNE & McCARTNEY STORY” takes you on a journey behind some of the greatest hits of all-time, and how the careers of these 2 songwriting legends have crossed over the years.

Paul McCartney and Jeff Lynne, both still performing at the top of their game in their seventies, could actually be standing at the top of rock and pop’s greatest family tree.

The Beatles are, without question, the most popular band to have ever existed and the most influential too.

Jeff Lynne was a little younger than the Beatles and in awe of them. He was also a big fan of Roy Orbison. Roy was a little older than The Beatles and influenced them including the second single “Please Please Me”, which started as a slower Roy Orbison type ballad, until John’s Aunt Mimi suggested they speed it up.

The Beatles toured supporting Roy Orbison in the UK. They were so popular, that the bill was flipped to have The Beatles on last to appease the attendant audiences.

It is in celebration of this unique association, that we started ELO Beatles Beyond to play the fabulous crossover catalogue of Lynne and McCartney and the various Beatles / Beatles Solo and Wilbury related artists in theatres and venues across the UK…and Beyond!
