Mackay and Whitsunday Life
The Beatles are back and performing at the Mackay Entertainment Convention Centre (MECC) this May.
Envisioning a revival of The Beatles iconic Rooftop Concert, Aussie band The Honey Sliders, will bring the best of Australian musicians, including the likes of Danny Widdicombe, Dan Mansfield, Ben Carstens, and Bos Borley in an invigorating movie projection, acclaimed to impress all audience members.
Set on the backdrop of a cool winter’s day in 1969, the Rooftop Concert acted as catalyst to propel the band into all-time rock-stardom, only being a 42-minute show before police arrived at the Apple Corps building in Savile Row and ordered the band to reduce the volume.
Despite this, the raw power of the impromptu show enchanted an unsuspecting crowd.
The Honey Sliders do more than just impersonate The Beatles, but rather have intimately recreated The Beatles’ discography, creating a performance that will ring true to any Beatles fan.
The Honey Sliders also reminisce on other popular musicians, Neil Young, particularly his classic album Harvest, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones, having travelled across New South Wales and Queensland performing to a multitude of audiences.
A combination of nostalgia and a faithful celebration, The Honey Sliders Play the Beatles’ Rooftop Concert is a positive reflection of the impact of the original Rooftop Concert, and nods to the power and testament of The Beatles and their endless and continuous creativity, and their ability to wow crowds and fans 54 years on.
With much critical acclaim, this performance will throw audiences back to The Beatles’ final live and open performance of their career.
With an extended lineup of Beatles hits and rarities, The Honey Sliders will perform at the MECC on May 27, with doors opening at 7pm.
For one night only, this show is quickly selling out. To purchase tickets, head to themecc.com.au.
