The Beatgirls present a musical tribute to one of pop’s legendary producers.
The BeatGirls are back at Circa for two weeks only with an homage to one of music’s most influential record producers, rock ’n' roll’s legendary madman - Phil Spector!
Spector showcases the best work from Phil's career and recounts the stories around the music as told by the artists with whom he worked: The Ronettes, The Chiffons, The Crystals, The Righteous Brothers, John Lennon, The Beatles, Tina Turner and more!
For his contributions to the music industry, Phil Spector was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, in 1997 he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 2004 Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #63 on their list of the "Greatest Artists of All Time".
“Phil Spector has produced and written an astounding amount of hits, many of which are regarded as classics and still pack the dance floors today,” says Beatgirl Andrea Sanders. “The infectious, uplifting beats and catchy melodies of the 60s rock ’n' roll girl groups ushered in a new sound and format which took the world by storm securing the girl groups place in pop history.”
A far cry from the success, glamour and Hollywood mansions Spector now resides at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility where he is serving life for murder. Well known for his eccentric behaviour and penchant for wearing terrible wigs, Phil has described himself as 'relatively insane' a fact backed up by those who worked with him.
Over time people may forget Phil Spector but his music will live on with new generations discovering the songs that got the world rocking and changed the face of music forever.
Starring Carolyn McLaughlin, Kali Kopae, Andrea Sanders and special guest Jason Chasland, Spector features hit songs such as Be My Baby, He’s A Rebel, Da do Ron Ron, Unchained Melody, Imagine, You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling, My Sweet Lord and River Deep Mountain High.
Spector is a spectacular celebration of an amazing career spanning over 60 years.
