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.

“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.
