I was too young to see The Beatles perform live back in the 60s; although I have seen 3 or the 4 perform solo (George, Ringo, Paul). I remember when I first started really listening to them in the late 60s and early 70s, I would make my own mix tapes, trying to “create” a Beatles concert using dubbed-in audience sounds and bootleg versions of Beatles tracks, such was my obsession with seeing the band live. So, when The Bootleg Beatles came to Auckland, I decided I needed to see them. I’m not sure what I was expecting…I’ve never seen a tribute band before…but I figured, well, at least the songs will be good. They were, of course, but so was the band.
