The American Tour ’64 w/”Beatlemania Now”
September 13 2014 @ 8:00 pm
4) Legendary rock promoter Pat DiCesare, who brought the Beatles to Pittsburgh for a concert at the Civic Arena on September 14, 1964, seeks to recreate a taste of that magic fifty years later with The American Tour ’64. This exciting event features one of the nation’s top Beatles tribute acts, Beatlemania Now. The production takes the audience on an amazing multimedia, musical journey from early mop tops and suits to long hair and hippie clothes. The songs in Beatlemania Now also advance, from “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves you” to the later consciousness raisers of “Come Together” and “Let it Be.”
Also on the bill are tribute acts of the musicians who influenced the Beatles including Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Fats Domino. Watch out for the screaming girls. 8 p.m. Benedum Center, 237 7th Ave., Cultural District.
