FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The Fort Wayne Embassy Theatre announced Tuesday a Beatles tribute band would be making a stop in the Summit City on its first American tour.
The Mersey Beatles have quite a bit in common with the original British band that exploded in the mid-1960s.
They were born in Liverpool. They played for a decade at the Cavern Club, where the Beatles got their start. They also kind of look like the band members.
John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird has even said, “There are a lot of Beatles tribute bands from all over the world and I have seen them all, but The Mersey Beatles are the best I’ve heard.”
Tickets for the October 23 concert go on sale Friday July 24. Prices start at $25 and then $30, $35 and $40. Tickets can be purchased at the embassy box office, by phone at 800-745-3000 or online at Ticketmaster.

Julia will be chatting about her book “Imagine This” and signing copies.
