WYES, Fab Four, simply fabulous remembrance of The Beatles in New Orleans
Written by 

 ringoSimply Fabulous.

That’s how I must describe the “Fab Four”, the look-alike, sound-alike, sing-alike unofficial-official road musical show mimicking of the real “Fab Four”, or commonly known as The Beatles.

 WYES TV, or what I call, the “Official Home of New Orleans” because of its incredible contributions to the region, presented this wonderfully-talented group.  Three of the make-believers hail from California with one originating from Liverpool, the four celebrated the 50-year anniversary of John, Paul, George and Ringo appearing at City Park Stadium, now Tad Gormley.  The original event date was  September 16, 1964.

Simply put, the Beatles, uh, sorry, The Fab Four, wowed those in attendance from the moment that Ed Sullivan (a comedian from Florida), introduced them to the umbrella-laden crowd--who were willing to brave the rain, which amazingly ended as Sullivan’s “really big shew” got on its way.

From the moment “I want to hold your hand” started to the final swaying note of “Hey Jude”, I honestly felt I was watching the actual musical icons of rock, in person.   There they were, in person and on the big screen--Paul’s droopy eyes, Ringo’s playful nose,  George’s weeping lead and John’s stoic vision of  peace.

Over fifty years ago, the Beatles started their musical and cultural journey.  Because of our own musical presence and talent, New Orleans just happened to be one of those cities fortunate enough to host one short night along their magical tour.  

Thanks to WYES, if only for two hours, I was lucky to witness their return to the same football field, taking me down the memories of Penny Lane and Abbey Road. 

Truly, it was just like yesterday.

(Here is the video I made of the show with a battery-drained and phone camera)
