1964 Tribute To The Beatles
“Best Beatles Tribute on Earth.” – Rolling Stone
1964 Tribute to the Beatles Fans Back to an Iconic Era. Back in 1964, a historical moment happened when Ed Sullivan brought The Beatles to his “Really Big Show” in New York City. Though all the phases of their incredible career were ground breaking, these early concert days are certainly what created the ‘MANIA’ around the group. It was the U.S. debut of The Beatles, introduced as “Great Britain’s cultural gift to America,“ who went on to become one of the biggest and most influential music groups in history.
Presenting songs released prior to the Sgt. Pepper era, “1964” The Tribute remarkably recreates an early ‘60s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter. Performing the hits are Mark Benson as John Lennon, Mac Ruffing as Paul McCartney, Tom Work as George Harrison and Bobby Potter as Ringo Starr. The incredible cast takes fans back to an iconic era performing rock classics such as “She Loves You,” “Eight Days a Week,” “All My Loving,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” “From Me To You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and many more. The band will be visiting Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater on April 3, 2020
