Who doesn’t love a good cover/tribute band? Music fans down in Austin sure do, or at least pretended to thoroughly enjoy a Beatles tribute band on Saturday, when Dr. Pepper’s Jaded Hearts Club Band took the stage as the headlining act for Rachel Ray’s SXSW Feedback day party. The classic rock supergroup is comprised of Miles Kane (the Rascals/the Last Shadow Puppets), Matt Bellamy (Muse), Chris Cester (Jet), Ilan Rubin (Nine Inch Nails/Angels & Airwaves) and Sean Payne (The Zutons), and provided fans in attendance for SXSW music festival and conference with 11 Beatles cover tunes to help turn the weekend festivities up a notch.
As NME reports, the band tore through an afternoon set that included “Hey Bulldog,” “Helter Skelter,” “Baby You Can Drive My Car,” “Saw Her Standing There,” “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Money (That’s What I Want).” Various fan-shot videos and photos of the band’s performance can be watched in the clips and images below.
The Jaded Heart’s Club Band were just one of the many popular acts who appeared at Stubb’s down in Austin for Rachel Ray’s concert party. Salt-N-Peppa, Kurt Vile, Albert Hammond Jr., Hinds and Caroline Rose were all in attendance and performing throughout the day for the final afternoon/evening of music events as part of the annual springtime industry marathon.
The tribute band made their live debut back in late September and performed again earlier this year at the SIR Rehearsal Studios in Los Angeles, where attendees were treated to a surprise guest appearance by Paul McCartney himself. The supergroup, who cheekily pull their name from the Beatles' famous 1967 concept album, is currently scheduled to join Roger Daltrey with a concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall later this week. Muse are also currently scheduled to headline a handful of U.S. festivals this spring and summer, including BottleRock Napa and Bonnaroo.
