    Talking The Fab Four at Tomorrowland Terrace

    Has anyone here seen the Beatles trubute band called The Fab Four? They used to perform three times a week during the summer season a few years back and I really enjoyed watching each of their three sets. The first set was all music from the Beatles early years, such as Twist and Shout, I wanna Hold Your Hand etc. The second set ( my favorite) was all Sgt. Peppers era music and the final set was the later years. These guys were amazing! Not only did they sound just like the real deal but most of them looked like them too, especially the guy who played Paul. Anyways these guys were awesome and I wonder if any of you out there remember seeing them at the Tomorrowland Terrace. This was a few years ago because I remember the Rocket Rods were still in operation.

    Yup, I've seen them. It was before I got into The Beatles and I wish I could see them now.

    From what I'm reading, these guys must be pretty good. Nothing to do with Disneyland, but does anyone else remember the "Beatlemania" stage show from the 70's and 80's...that was great.

    I have the dvd set of the four Ed Sullivan shows the Beatles did in 64 and 65...they have the original commercials and everything...

    The Fab-Four sounds awesome!

    And dlfreak.... Beatles fans are HARDLY slow old people! Most of them are in their 50's and plenty (like me) are the second and third generation of Beatles lovers! If you don't like them fine, but no need to make jabs at those who do!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe they were there just this past Summer. I was listening to them as we were leaving the autopia. I'm pretty sure it was them.

    On the not quite so fab four side, I saw Benny Hill and the Hillbillies just yesterday, and they did a tribute to the Beatles. They all had their mop top wigs on, and the show was actually pretty good! Who knew that Beatles tunes still sounded good when played by a blue grass band?

    I checked out the thread that AliasD posted, localdisny, and indeed it appears that the Fab Four played at the DLR last August.

    And Alias, I know the McCartney thing is old...the jock I was listening to, though, told it like it was the first time it had ever been said... oh well...

    I loved them all last summer. Not only was it cool to watch their sets, but it was cool to be crusing in Autopia and hearing them waift across the roadways.

    The fact that they still occasionally play D-Land is quite a bargain: they're now a pretty decent draw in Vegas, have been at the Aladdin for some time and, I believe, now have a new deal with another casino for their own theater and headlining gig.

    Yep, I saw their show at the Orpheum in San Francisco in 79/80. I still have my ticket stubs somewhere in my desk.

    It was a great show!




    Oh, and yes, we did see the Fab Four last year at the Resort. The kids thought that they were the real Beatles!

    Re: The Fab Four at Tomorrowland Terrace

    Having seen both Beatlemania and the Fab 4, I prefer the latter. Seeing them in a small venue like Tomorrowland Terrace (am I dating myself?) only adds to the experience. Intimacy, and all that

    I remember an old Al Lutz article (Mouse Planet, maybe even pre-MP D-I-G) pointing out the irony of the F4 playing "Yellow Submarine" while a fleet of yellow submarines sat gathering mold and rust just a few hundred feet away .......
