On our recent trip to Chatellerault we were walking around near 'Les Halles' when we saw a second smaller tourist office (does the town really need 2?) which was advertising a concert for May 2012. I had to do a double take.There is a Beatles tribute band here in France and they are coming to Chatellerault. I enquired inside - once I distracted the web-surfer in this not busy office, to ask the ticket price. They are 36 euros each! Now I am a big Beatles fan and might have been interested but not at that price. Apparently they have been making a good living from this since 1999.
Here are the Rabeats in concert - judge for yourself.
Footnote: One of my favourite concerts ever was Wings at the SECC in Glasgow 1990 where Paul featured some of the Beatles hits - great! You can see the set-list for that night here. Sadly I still have the ticket stub.
One of my all-time favourite albums is Wings' 'Band on the run'. Favourite Beatles album? Revolver/Abbey Road equal .
