We’ve learned that the popular band “The British Invasion” at the United Kingdom Pavilion will be giving their final performances the weekend of April 30th. Word has been going around for a while that Disney might not renew the group and it apparently is true given the dates of the final performances. From what we understand, whatever group replaces the British Invasion will NOT be playing Beatles music, and no date on when to expect the new group to debut. Will pass along more info as we get it.
Update April 20 –
The following was posted on the British Invasion Facebook Page confirming the band’s final performance date:
“To Our Fans.
First thanks to all the fans of the British Invasion for all their support over the years!! It has been an honor to perform for you and Disney all these years! We have given our notice to Disney Talent and Casting that we wouldn’t be playing after April 30th some time ago. We will be back to play at Disney from time to time and you will find those future dates posted on the British Invasion Facebook page!! Stay tuned for a british invasion fan appreciation party in May and details of our first concert appearance in downtown Orlando on May 14th.
