Beatles' tour boss en route to Ulster festival

By Brendan McDaid

The Beatles’ former road manager will be pulling up at a forthcoming Ulster festival held in honour of the Fab Four.

Tony Bramwell has confirmed that he will appear at the sixth annual BeatlesFest, which takes place at Moville, Co Donegal, from August 16-19.

Mr Bramwell will be in town throughout the festival on his third visit to the place.

As a child he was best friends with George Harrison and was also friendly with the young Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

He was later road manager for the band during the height of their global success and has written about the experience in his autobiography.

Speaking to the Telegraph yesterday, Mr Bramwell confirmed he has spoken to the two surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, about his previous experiences at the Donegal festival.

He said: “I tell the two lads about Beatle events I attend around the world.

“I love Moville. It has a unique atmosphere and hospitality,” he added.
