The British Invasion, the popular Beatles-inspired band, is leaving after 15 years of entertaining fans in the United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot. The band began its run by playing Beatles songs, but now plays music from other popular British bands as well.

The band's last performance at Epcot will be April 30, 2011. The following message was posted on their Facebook page:

"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.
Sincerely,
The British Invasion 2011"

There will be a replacement band, but no details of the new band's music style have been released.
