SATURDAY 11th MAY 2019's tribute line-up:
plus the ROCKAOKE band are back!!!
— >> ED SHEERAN by Jack Shepherd [9pm]
Jack Shepherd is an exceptional impersonator and world renowned for his incredible performances. Drawing on his skills as a multi-talented musician, Jack is the only Ed Sheeran impersonator to recreate a full live performance, including rapping, beat boxing and the use of a custom-built replica loop station with NO backing tracks.
With a big stage presence and a relaxed, laid back attitude, Jack’s control over the stage and audience is like no other, and with similar looks, age and even shoe size, Jack’s gigs are unparalleled.
Jack uses the same guitars as Ed to replicate the sounds of an Ed Sheeran show, and he even has a one-off hand built replica of Ed’s 00. Jack is supported by his own Sound and Guitar Technician to make sure all gigs go off without a hitch.
What do people say?
«Absolutely amazing! Looks like the real deal and sounds like the real Ed»
«The best Ed Sheeran tribute show around!»
«Absolutely incredible. His energy is amazing. Very talented guy. Best tribute I've ever been to»
— >> COLDPLAY by Viva La Coldplay [7:30pm]
Viva La Coldplay recreate the complete anthology of Martin, Buckland, Berryman and Champion. The band are big Coldplay fans themselves and are able to perform all career-spanning material from 2000's 'Parachutes' to 2015's 'A Head full of Dreams' taking in key tracks such as Yellow, Clocks, The Scientist, Viva La Vida, Something Just Like This, Paradise and Adventure of a Lifetime to name a few.
With a replica Coldplay stage set-up, it's not just the music that is bursting with colour; everything you hear is performed live and truly brings the magic of Coldplay to every show.
What do people say?
«Close your eyes and you'll think it was the real thing!»

— >> WHITNEY HOUSTON by Micki as Whitney [6:15pm]
Micki As Whitney is a highly professional tribute to the Queen of the Night and features Whitney’s classic hits including I Wanna Dance With Somebody, How Will I know, Run To You, The Greatest Love Of All and of course the timeless smash hit I Will Always Love You.
Micki has an uncanny likeness to Whitney both vocally and physically and creates a replica show that is unforgettable; a must see for any Whitney fan!

«Absolutely fantastic show tonight, your voice is amazing, I had goosebumps all night!»
«This girl can sing!!! What a fantastic voice and amazing tribute to Whitney — we loved your show»
«Honestly blown away. Your voice is absolutely superb!!! By far the best night out I've had in a long time and the best tribute singer I've ever seen!»
— >> LIONEL RICHIE by Hamilton Browne [5pm]
Hamilton Browne is without doubt the Number One Lionel Richie tribute around today. His vocal talent and uncanny resemblance to one of the most resilient Legends of Motown prompted the BBC to invite Hamilton to appear alongside Lionel Richie himself on the Graham Norton Show!
Whilst in such great demand across the length & breadth of the UK, Hamilton spends a considerable part of the year travelling the world, delivering a replica of all the charm and personification of a true legend.
"«Hamilton Browne is without doubt one of the most popular tribute artistes on the scene today»
«I absolutely love Lionel Richie, and you truly did him justice!»
— >> ROCKAOKE [10:30pm]
We are the band, but YOU are the star!
ROCKAOKE are the UK's original, best and only specialist live karaoke band, inviting their audience to 'live the dream' by taking to the stage and singing their favourite hit with a full live band, including backing vocals! There's over 200 songs to choose from, ranging from Bruno Mars, Oasis, ABBA and everything in between.
Last year, spaces on the Rockaoke slot filled up so quickly that this time we've extended their set to 90 minutes! It is the best way we can think of to end the night!
— All the fun, dancing, singing, eating and drinking will take place inside Coventry's unique Cathedral Ruins, complimented by a full festival-style production under the cover of an open marquee including bars and street food!
Seating will be available around the street food areas, with the dance floor reserved for partying!
This year the show is open to ages 14+; attendees under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
Doors will open at 4pm.
Tickets start at just £14 and will be on sale Friday 1st February at 9am via replicalive.co.uk.
