THEATRE

RAIN
A Tribute To The Beatles
The Pantages Theatre
April 12 – 17, 2011

RAIN, the acclaimed Beatles concert, returns by popular demand to the Pantages Theatre! They look like them and they sound just like them! All the music and vocals are performed totally live! RAIN covers The Beatles from the earliest beginnings through the psychedelic late 60s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. RAIN is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience…a fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials from the 1960s lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups.
