|The Beatles live on stage? It must be a tribute band!|
Neil: This is Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Neil.
Helen: 还有我，Helen。 (来源：http://www.EnglishCN.com)
Neil: Today we’re going to look at words and phrases that have recently become part of the English language.
Helen: 在 Real English 这个环节，我们来一起学学英语中出现的新短语和表达方式。今天要学的新词儿是什么呢，Neil？
Neil: Today’s new word is 'tribute band'.
Helen: Tribute band？这是什么呀？
Neil: I’ll explain. This phrase is made up of two words 'tribute' and 'band'.
Helen: 由两个词组成, tribute 礼物，贡品; 还有 band 乐队。
Neil: A tribute band is a group of musicians which only plays the music of a famous group – for example The Beatles – as a tribute to them.
Helen: 哦，原来这个 tribute band 只演奏一些非常出名的，有声望的乐队的音乐。
Neil: That’s right.
Helen: 他们很流行吗？ Neil?
Neil: Well, yes. Nowadays many people love the Beatles, for example, but it is impossible to see them perform live. However, you could go and see a tribute band and have almost the same experience.
Neil: Yes. There are tribute bands to Abba, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, and many others.
A: I watched The Doors live in concert yesterday.
B: What? That’s impossible. Their singer died in 1971!
A: Well, it wasn’t the real Doors. It was a tribute band, from Australia actually. They were really good.
Neil: Oh yes. I saw an Abba tribute band a while ago. It was fantastic.
Helen: Really? So they were good, then.
Neil: Yes. It’s almost like watching the real thing.
Neil: Yes, of course, that’s the best bit. Everyone sang along.
Neil: That’s a good idea, Helen. I’m sure you’ll enjoy yourself.
Helen: 好吧，那让我们来复习一下今天学的 – a tribute band – 就是一个专门模仿已经出了名的乐队保留下来的经典曲目，服饰和声音都是保留着经典乐队之前的样子。
Neil: It looks like we are out of time. You’ve been listening to Real English from BBC Learning English. Join us again soon for more up-to-the-minute Real English. Bye.
Helen: See you next time.
