BEATLEMANIA is still alive and well more than 50 years on if the massive crowd at Penistone Park in Greenwood is any indication.
More than 7500 people watched the curtain come down on the City of Joondalup’s Music in the Park concert series on Saturday evening as The Milford Street Shakers and Murphy’s Lore delivered their own take on the music of The Beatles.
Many families arrived early to secure the best viewing spots and take advantage of the various children’s activities on offer.
Later in the night, some crowd members took the opportunity to dance along to timeless classics such as Hey Jude, Back in the USSR, Oh Darling and I Saw Her Standing There.
Mayor Albert Jacob said it was pleasing to see so many people enjoying the concert.
“What a fantastic evening of free family-friendly fun; perfect weather, a big crowd and two engaging local acts performing the timeless music of The Beatles,” he said.
The City’s summer events program concludes with the Joondalup Festival from March 23 to 25.
