RAIN: A Tribute To The Beatles - on Broadway

The acclaimed Beatles concert RAIN: A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES will make its Broadway debut this fall with a limited 12-week run of performances at the NEIL SIMON THEATRE (250 West 52nd Street). RAIN is set to officially go national in early 2011.

RAIN: A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES marks the first time The Beatles’ music has been licensed on Broadway. While for the past 45 years the music of The Beatles has touched millions of people around the world, the fact remains the Fab Four were experienced live in concert by very few. The group’s final concert tour of 1966 was long before the release of the legendary Sgt. Pepper, The White Album and Abbey Road albums. RAIN brings The Beatles’ incredible songs to a whole new audience of music lovers.

RAIN encompasses the full range of The Beatles’ discography through a Live performance onstage. From the group’s early days on the Ed Sullivan Show in ’64 through Sgt. Pepper and onto Abbey Road, RAIN is a time capsule of music highlighting the unforgettable songs in the iconic group’s career some of which have never been performed before in a live concert setting. RAIN features “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Yesterday,” “With A Little Help From My Friends,” “Come Together,” “Hard Days Night” and many more.

Official opening on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 26 at 6:30 PM and running through Sunday, January 9, 2011 at the NEIL SIMON THEATRE.
