Gorton Center Live Presents-American English
06/30/2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Gorton Center Live Presents: American English
Join us for Gorton Outside with American English, the world’s best Beatles Tribute band! The show begins with the early years of Ed Sullivan and includes classic Beatles favorites such as She Loves You, Twist and Shout, I Want To Hold Your Hand, and many others. American English captures the very essence of John, Paul, George and Ringo! Next, you’ll take a trip with American English as they recreate the psychedelic era of The Beatles. And in the end, you’ll be transformed to a spectacular musical excursion of the final years of The Beatles partnership. Relive the years of The White Album, Let It Be, and Abbey Road. Moving renditions of songs such as Hey Jude, Something, and Let It Be, are sure to complete the tribute to The Beatles!
-The late Sam Leach, original promoter of the Beatles, and author of “Birth of the Beatles”
“They are without doubt the world’s premier Beatles Tribute band. And a great bunch of lads…just like the Beatles were. It amazes me how each individual member of American English is so like his counterpart in The Beatles. In looks, performance and personality. And it’s not part of their act but a true reflection of their own self.”
-Eric Burdon of “The Animals”
“These guys are more than a band, they’re a Broadway show!”
-Dick Biondi, legendary rock n’ roll DJ who introduced
the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl and Comiskey Park
“American English is the best Beatles act since The Beatles!!!”
“The best Beatle band on the planet!”
