By the fall of 1978, Long Live The Beatles growing reputation and a sold out show for 10,000 people at Six Flags Great Adventure brought the brothers to the attention of the producers of the Broadway Production Beatlemania. The producers were blown away by the brothers’ attention to detail, including right-handed guitarist Tim who had recently taught himself to play bass left-handed to accurately portray Paul McCartney. An offer was made to Brian and Tim to audition for the roles of John Lennon and Paul McCartney respectively. The brothers “passed the audition” and soon began daily rehearsals on Broadway for their debut on the “White Way”.
While Tim and Brian were still in rehearsals in 1979, Beatlemania closed on Broadway. But the brothers wasted no time and secured themselves a multi-year deal for Long Live The Beatles with Six Flags Entertainment, enlisting youngest brother Mike on the drums as “Ringo” along the way. The show was performed for an estimated three million people at the Six Flags parks from 1979-1984.
The brothers would also reach another milestone during this period becoming the first Beatles tribute band to recreate a Beatles concert at a major league baseball stadium, performing for more than 37,000 rock n' roll and baseball fans at Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium in 1980.
