George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan, aka The Traveling Wilburys. There’s never been a group, let alone super-group in rock history quite like it. They created two mega albums and launched a slew of hits in the late 80s and early 90s, capped with a Grammy win in 1989. But one thing they didn’t do, much to the chagrin of their world-wide fan base, is tour. That is…until now…
The Traveling Milburys capture the sheer talent, excitement and magic of The Traveling Wilburys for all to see and experience. Live. On stage. And in your town. From the opening chords to the final encores of this energy-packed and hit-filled evening, this is without a doubt the world’s greatest tribute to The Traveling Wilburys.
“Close your eyes and it’s like you’re listening to a Wilburys album. But then you open your eyes, and it’s like they’re really there – playing right in front of you…”
John Terrid, Toronto Star
“A roaring, eerily authentic tribute to The Traveling Wilburys, right down to the Rickenbacker, Gretsch and Gibson guitars.”
Chris Day, Ottawa Citizen
“I’ve got goosebumps on my goosebumps…”
Henry Hainsworth, Hamilton Spectator
For over a decade, Jerry Boyer has been delighting fans across North America as George Harrison in the well-known Beatles tribute band The Liverpool 4. It only makes sense that he now takes George beyond the Beatle years and into the Traveling Milburys era.
Only Roy can do Roy. So here he is: Roy Leblanc. He's one of the world's best at recreating the vocal stylings of Roy Orbison. And he's got the passport stamps and cabinet full of awards and accolades to prove it.
Gerry Parsons is a fixture in the Canadian music scene, thrilling crowds across North America as Tom Petty in the tribute band Practically Petty. It's only right that he takes Tom to the next level in The Traveling Milburys.
An original member of The Grottybeats, one of Canada's most accomplished Beatles tribute acts, John Cassano pays homage to the work of another of his favorite bands; ELO, as none other than Jeff Lynne.
He looks like Bob. He sounds like Bob. Randy Shook nails it as Bob Dylan. 'nuff said.
Backed by a rock-solid rhythm section. On drums, Danny Sandwell. On keyboards, Rick Hyatt. And on bass, Mike Berardelli.
