Tickets are still available for the internationally-acclaimed RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, presented at Appalachian State University’s Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts on March 4. Starting at 8 p.m. the show will transport Beatles fans of all ages back to the glory days of the world’s most famous rock n’ roll band.
The performance strives to tell the story of The Beatles through their music, with the use of multimedia and LED screens on stage that act as virtual sets, bringing the audience along on a trip through the most pivotal moments in Beatles history.
Attendees will get to see iconic performances like the Ed Sullivan Show, movies, TV moments, the Shay Stadium concert and more. Without dialogue, RAIN lets the music and the recreations tell the story of The Beatles.
Tickets are $30 per person, and $25 for ASU students. Tickets may be purchased online here, over the phone at 800-841-2787 or in person at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts Box Office.
