Throughout the show the band played their roles perfectly. There was two hours of music, which was faultless, professional and polished.The performers stayed in character throughout the show, they varied their costumes and hair styles for each of the four sets, attention to detail was second to none, even changing the base drum skins in sync with the era.
The audience age ranged from, from young to pensioners and everyone in between and they got their money’s worth, singing and dancing in the aisles.
The opening number was ‘She Loves You’, followed by a string of their early hits, around 10 in total
The second set, complete with a change in costumes, saw another block of songs such as ‘Help!’, ‘Yellow Submarine’, ‘Ticket to Ride’ and ‘Day Tripper’.
This was followed by an interval and Act two which brought two more sets of music, the first taking us to the Sergeant Pepper era and the final set followed by an encore which included another plethora of hits. We saw four changes of costume, covering the different stages in the Beatles musical journey.
The finale saw the entire theatre on their feet, singing and dancing along. This ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ delivers and if you get the chance, don’t miss it next time that it visits Stoke on Trent.
