I saw the Cavern Beatles on Wed evening and they were FAB!!! (for more information on the Cavern Beatles see former entry). They played in the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle where the Beatles recorded "My Bonnie" with Tony Sheridan in 1961, it was the first time I saw that place. A little memorial tablet reminds of the fateful event. This would become the record that called Brian Epstein's attention to the Beatles, and he later played this record and several other songs to Decca and EMI to catch a record contract for them. It was great to be actually in place and see guys on stage who at least looked and sounded like the Beatles :3

Unfortunately there was no opportunity to talk to the guys in private because Horst Fascher and his brother, who was driving me, wanted to leave early, so I missed the very last song!!! But "Ringo" came out to talk to me shortly before the show, and I promised to return next year. These guys just don't stop touring! :D The audience was very happy and in a beatlesque mood, shouting "Ringo!" and "John!" and dancing and clapping along.

I especially loved "John" because he even mimicked his movements and goofy gestures between the songs :)

In the end they changed and "grew older" while they played "The Ballad of John&Yoko" and "Get Back"
