No, I'm not talking about the weather outside right now. I am talking about "Rain-A Tribute to The Beatles." What an amazing show and experience! It is a definite must see for any Beatles fan.
I am a huge Beatles fan (thanks to my Dad who bought my first cassette tape of the Beatles). I've never gotten to experience a live Beatles concert or Beatlemania. (Obviously due to the fact that I was born 7 years after the band "broke up.") However, after last night's show at The Capitol Theatre, I can safely say that I have. And, no, I am not kidding! It was definitely as close to seeing "the real" Beatles as I will ever come, and these performers didn't disappoint.
The show follows the Beatles career from the time they landed in America from Liverpool. The show started with the Ed Sullivan performance, complete with the black suits and mop top hair, and finished with the famous rooftop performance. Costumes and hairstyles followed what the Beatles actually wore and looked like. Not only did "Rain" impress with the "look" of the Beatles, but boy did they sound like them too! I would be surprised if a die-hard fan could tell the difference, because I certainly couldn't. At times I found myself thinking I was at an actual Beatles concert. I would have been satisfied with just seeing and hear this tribute band, but they added more visual aspects to the show that made it even more incredible. Video screens played throughout the show, airing various times in American history that corresponded with the timeline of the Beatles.
This experience was one I will never forget. Thank you to my Dad for introducing me to The Beatles, my Mom and Aunt for going to the show with me, and for the actual performers of "Rain." You might not be the real Beatles, but you are deserving of a rock star status. Amazing job. Amazing show.
