RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the release of the ” Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album. The psychedelic multimedia spectacular celebration begins on the 1st of October 2017 with nationwide theatre tour dates, culminating with three nights at the famed London Palladium.
As “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!” according to Associated Press, the multi-talented members of RAIN from the USA, perform the full range of The Beatles’ discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio, but never performed for an audience.
In addition to the updated sets that include brand new LED, high-definition screens and multimedia content, RAIN brings the “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album to life in its entirety with the launch of the 2017 Tour.
Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. It is most definitely a family show, so kids are welcome and last approximately two hours with one interval.
They bang out all of the songs from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” along with many other Beatles favourites such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” and more.
Dubbed “an adoring tribute”, the show has been a sell-out, critically acclaimed success across the US and now it is the UK’s turn to experience this fab evening with the mop tops and their timeless music. Like The Beatles, the onstage members of RAIN are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right.
