You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello: British Invasion Leaving Epcot
Rumours have been ciculating for a little while but there seems to be some confirmation on illuminatingepcot.com that the Beatles Tribute band, The British Invasion have not had their contract renewed by Disney. The band is expected to finish on the weekend of 30th April having been resident there for 14 years. It will be sad to see them go and hope that this is merely a rumour. The band, focusing on 60s music, mostly the Beatles have played several shows daily in the UK Pavilion’s Rose Garden.
We will get back to you as soon as we know any more
The British Invasion has posted a message to fans on their Facebook page which is posted below:
