1) The It Was 50 Years Ago Today Tour—A Tribute to the Beatles’ White Album will stop at The Palace Theatre. The White Album (or The Beatles, as it is actually titled) was released in November of 1968. (Okay, so a little over 50 years ago.) The nickname came from the cover’s plain sleeve. It was a double album, and the band members were starting to go in different directions creatively. The album included John’s heady “Dear Prudence” and Paul’s proto-metal “Helter Skelter,” although both songs are still credited Lennon/McCartney. George Harrison contributed “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” with Eric Clapton playing a lead guitar part. And Ringo got his first full songwriting credit on “Don’t Pass Me By.” The tour features rocker-producer Todd Rundgren, singer-songwriter Christopher Cross, the Monkees’ Micky Dolenz, Chicago’s Jason Scheff, and Badfinger’s Joey Molland. Badfinger were signed to The Beatles’ Apple Records. The artists will play songs from The White Album alongside their own material, so you might also hear Rundgren’s “Hello It’s Me” and Cross’s multiple Grammy-winner “Sailing.” 7:30 p.m. 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg. (CM)
