Occasional supergroup The Rutles - led by ex-Bonzo NEIL  INNES and drummer JOHN HALSEY – return in May 2019 for a short series of UK dates: THE GET UP AND GO AGAIN TOUR – 2019
 
 
Widely known as the “Pre – Fab Four", The Rutles first arrived on our screens in 1975 via a sketch on Eric Idle’s BBC television series ‘RUTLAND WEEKEND TELEVISION’. It featured Neil Innes (Monty Python songwriter and ex-Bonzo Dog Band founding member) fronting the band singing “I Must Be In Love”.
 
Three years later, the groundbreaking movie, 'All  You Need  Is  Cash', expanded  the satire  and  featured  guest  appearances  by George Harrison, Mick Jagger, Bill Murray, Michael  Palin, John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, and many more.  
 
 
As a peer of The Beatles in the 1960s (The  Bonzos appeared in the Magical  Mystery  Tour   film  and  Paul McCartney produced  a  single  for  them), Neil Innes is well qualified to satirise the Fab Four.
 
With the exception of Eric Idle, each of  the four  Rutles (including  drummer  John  Halsey – AKA – Barry WOM) played their own instruments as well as acting in the film. In fact few people realise that Halsey is a rock icon in his own right, having drummed on many classic albums, including the Lou Reed album Transformer, and toured with many others including Joe Cocker, The Scaffold, Grimms, Timebox, Patto.
 
 
Expect   a  full  evening's  entertainment, featuring  all  the  classic  songs including...
I Must Be In Love / Cheese And  Onions / Piggy in the Middle / With a Girl Like You / (and of course) Get Up and Go.
