DIRECT FROM BROADWAY, TICKETS FOR RAIN: A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES, GO ON SALE FRIDAY, SEPT. 27

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DIRECT FROM BROADWAY!
THE ORIGINAL BEATLES EXPERIENCE!

"THE BEATLES ARE BACK!" - Variety
New Songs included in RAIN'S Multi-Media Experience for the 2013-14 Tour.

 FOUR PERFORMANCES ONLY!
January 17 - 19 at the Saenger Theatre

Tickets go on sale, Friday, Sept. 27

 

(New Orleans) - Sept. 25, 2013 - Direct from its phenomenally successful Broadway engagement, the internationally-acclaimed Beatles concert, RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, makes its return to New Orleans for four performances, playing January 17 - 19 at the Saenger Theatre.

As "the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!" (Associated Press), RAIN performs 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, new songs are being included with the launch of the 2013-14 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. From the early hits to later classics (I Want To Hold Your Hand, Hard Day's Night, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Let It Be, Come Together, Hey Jude and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

"The audience is enraptured. They get a chance to sing along, twist and shout!" -The New York Times

"Just turn off your mind, relax and float downstream for a quick fix of nostalgic cheer!"               - Entertainment Weekly

  "A fun-filled family crowd-pleaser!" - Toronto Star

"A two-hour homage to pop music's most brilliant gem."  - Los Angeles Times

"On their feet, with arms raised high above their heads, all in the audience were swaying and     singing along in blissed-out, nostalgia-powered unison! - Chicago Sun-Times

"The enraptured audience relives the soundtrack of its life!" - Chicago Tribune

"RAIN creates musical nirvana...makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up!  A     thrilling bit of time-warping nostalgia...Boomer Heaven!" - Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Uncanny! RAIN are a quartet of fine musicians in their own right...as The Beatles, they triumph!" - The Boston Herald

"An adoring Valentine to The Beatles!" - The Washington Post

"RAIN is a spectacular extravaganza...did the audience love it?  Yeah, yeah, yeah!" - The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Parents (and grandparents) and kids were on their feet bopping like crazy!" - The Courier Post

Like The Beatles, the onstage members of RAIN are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right.

RAIN will begin its four performance run at the Saenger Theatre on Friday, January 17 through Sunday, January 19. Performances are Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.

Single tickets start at $25 and will go on sale, Friday, September 27, at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, BroadwayInNewOrleans.com and all Ticketmaster outlets.

The theatre will host a wide variety of performing arts attractions including live theater, comedy shows and musical acts.
