Tickets for both the 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. performances of “RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles” are still available at the Mountainlair and CAC box offices, online at ticketmaster.com and by phone at 304-293-SHOW. Both shows are part of the University Arts Series.
Back by popular demand, “RAIN” has been hailed as “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles.” The show boasts a repertoire of nearly 200 Beatlemaniac favorites, ranging from such beloved songs as “Yesterday” and “Hey Jude” to classic hits including “Revolution” and “Come Together.”
“RAIN” covers the Fab Four from their very first Ed Sullivan Show appearance through the Abbey Road album, through the psychedelic late 1960s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. “RAIN” is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experiencea fusion of historical footage and hilarious 1960s television commercials lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups.
For the four longtime band membersJoey Curatolo (Paul McCartney), Joe Bithorn (George Harrison), Ralph Castelli (Ringo Starr) and Steve Landes (John Lennon), with a little help from their friend Mark Lewis (keyboards, percussion)the music is first and foremost. For more than two decades, “RAIN” has distinguished itself by focusing on details, always being faithful to The Beatles with the ultimate goal of delivering a perfect note-for-note performance. All the music is performed live, with no pre-recorded tapes or sequences.
