LIVERPOOL'S immortal Cavern Club celebrated its 50th birthday in style yesterday by announcing a string of similar clubs will open across the globe.

Buenos Aires, Adelaide and Tokyo already have their own versions of the Cavern Club.

But the influence of the Mathew Street venue will spread even further after owners confirmed they had inquiries from 42 countries about opening Cavern Clubs in exotic destinations, including Dubai and Shanghai.

The new venues were just part of a raft of plans designed to move the Cavern business model forward in the 21st century.
