Covers band in jokey mood for Acoustic Tent gig

The Bootleg Beatles had Glastonbury‘s Acoustic Tent singing along tonight (June 25), playing a greatest hits set that saw hundreds of fans queuing outside to see the tribute band.

The group – who impersonate The Beatles and even speak in Liverpudlian accents – played a chronologically ordered set spanning The Beatles‘ entire career.

The band were in jokey mood throughout, with ‘John Lennon‘ greeting the crowd with “Hello Woodstock!” early on, while ‘George Harrison‘ praised the crowd for their singing abilities, telling them, “You’re in fine voice!”


They had three costume changes during the set, which kicked off with ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’, and included the likes of ‘Hello Goodbye’, ‘Taxman’ and ‘Hey Jude’, with the crowd singing the “na na na” part of the latter song.
