    British Invasion vs. British Revolution



    The UK pavilion at Epcot recently got a new band to play in the gazebo.

    The old one was a Beatles tribute band called British Invasion. They even looked like the Beatles in their early years.

    The new one, British Revolution, plays Led Zeppelin, Queen, Beatles, The Who, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, and more.

    So for anyone who has seen both bands, which do you like better? And why?

    Ohhhh great question Alice. I personally like British Invasion better simply because, like you said, they do look like the Beatles. When I was about 6 or 7 I asked my dad, "Are those the real Beatles?!" lol.

    Re: British Invasion vs. British Revolution

    I only ever saw The British Invasion briefly but quite liked them.

    I saw a bit more of The British Revolution (then called The English Channel) on our last trip and really liked them.

    They seemed to play a wider variety of music that was more to my taste.

    I'll definitely be trying to see more of them on our next trip.

    British Invasion was very good, but I was really impressed by British Revolution. They pulled off "Bohemian Rhapsody!"

    British Revolution: Bohemian Rhapsody - YouTube


    Having said that, this was the best version of Bohemian Rhapsody I ever heard at WDW. You really had to be there to appreciate the "swell" of the band though - it doesn't come across anywhere near as powerful on YouTube (especially that awful squeaky bit on the vid - I don't remember that at all!). I really miss Future Corps.

    As a big Queen fan though, I shall definitely have to hear The British Revolution's full set now.

    I LOVED the British Invasion! I saw them several times. I have a picture of myself with them somewhere too (they were so nice!). I was so sad when I heard that they were leaving especially since on my last trip I didn't get to see them due to tropical storm-type rain most of the trip .
    I loved spending evening time in that little courtyard watching them play in the gazebo! Great music, great setting!
    I look forward to seeing the British Revolution on my next trip though.

    Re: British Invasion vs. British Revolution



    I'd like it if they mixed them up. I love walking through the UK pavilion and hearing "love me do"...but I could get into some Queen or Stones!
