The Rutles have announced details of a rare UK tour to take place in May, 2018.
Widely known as the “Pre-Fab Four”, The Rutles have also been called a “Beatles parody group”, a charge which has been strenuously denied.
The Rutles were originally formed as a spoof by Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band songwriter and musical genius Neil Innes and Monty Python’s Eric Idle for a sketch in the cult TV show ‘Rutland Weekend Television’.
The Rutles went on to star in the film ‘All You Need Is Cash (The Rutles)’, which also features cameos from George Harrison, John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Mick Jagger, Paul Simon, and Bill Murray.
Their best-known songs include ‘I Must Be In Love’, ‘Cheese And Onions’, ‘Piggy in the Middle’, and ‘With A Girl Like You’.
The Rutles appear at Fruit on Wednesday, May 23rd.
