Since there is no chance of the Fab Four reuniting, the closest you will probably get is seeing The Bootleg Beatles.

The band was formed in 1980 by Neil Harrison (the original John Lennon impersonator) and Andre Barreau (current bootleg George Harrison) when they were performing in the Beatlemania stage show in London's West End.

Producer and founder Harrison, who has been imitating Lennon for more than 30 years, said the band members were all huge Beatles fans. The feeling may be mutual, as they have even performed in front of the late George Harrison and Paul McCartney. The band will play at the Academy for Performing Arts' Lyric Theatre from November 1 to 4.

CitySeen has two pairs of A-reserve tickets (worth HK$750 each) to give away. To win, tell us in 50 words or less what your favourite Beatles' song is and why. E-mail answers to cityseen @scmp.com by 6pm, next Wednesday. Include your name, address and contact number, and put the words "fab four" in the subject line.
