DIRECT FROM BROADWAY, “THE BEATLES ARE BACK!” New Songs Added to RAIN’s Multi-Media Experience for 2013 Tour; Opening on October 26 for Two Performances Only at Rosemont Theatre
Direct from their phenomenally successful Broadway engagement, the internationally-acclaimed Beatles concert, “RAIN: A Tribute to The Beatles,” makes its debut at Rosemont Theatre (5400 N. River Rd., Rosemont) for
two performances only, October 26 at 3 and 8 p.m.
As “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles” (Associated Press), “RAIN” performs the full range of The Beatles’ discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition, new songs are being included with the launch of the 2013 tour. Together longer than The Beatles, “RAIN” has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!
Like The Beatles, the onstage members of “RAIN” are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right.
