"Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles" has been igniting a resurgence of Beatlemania with sold-out shows throughout the country, and the hotly anticipated production will finally land at Chicago's Auditorium Theatre from Tuesday, March 3 through Sunday, March 8.
The multimedia event features five distinct scene changes, each marking a career highlight for the legendary band. The show starts with the Fab Four's auspicious early days with a 1964 appearance on the "Ed Sullivan Show." The journey then takes fans through the band's meteoric rise with a set re-creating a historic Shea Stadium concert, another scene showcasing the colorful "Sgt. Pepper" era and then continuing through the Indian influences of the Beatles' late '60s flower power days. The moving finale of the show outlines the "Abbey Road" album cover and the end of the Beatles' brief but indelible career. Historic video footage of John, Paul, George and Ringo combined with the live band's performances provide "Rain" with a sense of both the depth of the band's history and the enduring immediacy of the music.
