All Ages Concert: Tributosaurus Becomes The Beatles 4/25 8pm
93 XRT presents
Tributosaurus Becomes THE BEATLES, VOL 7: Abbey Road, and the accompanying singles.
The full album will be performed in its entirety, with meticulous, faithful re-creations of the original arrangements.
The show is this Friday, April 25th - there are still great seats available if you order quickly!
The audacious Tributosaurus Beatles Project, to perform all of their recorded songs from chronological start to finish, is nearing The End. On the heels of a triumphant performance of the White Album in its entirety, Tributosaurus attacks Abbey Road. Re-creating the rock, blues, pop, and prog nuances, with all necessary instruments, will be thrillingly difficult.
The delicate brilliance of George Harrison’s “Something” and “Here Comes The Sun.” The progressively bizarre fuzz of “She’s So Heavy.” The iconic side 2 “Medley,” with 8 songs in 16 perfect minutes. As always, Tributosaurus will somehow bring music built on studio wizardry to a live performance.
The Tributosaurus Beatles Project, follows the United Kingdom releases in order. The show on April 25th will start with the remaining tracks yet to be performed from the hodge-podge that was Yellow Submarine, including “All Together Now” and Hey Bulldog.” You’ll also hear the singles released before Abbey Road, including “Lady Madonna,” “Revolution,” and “Hey Jude.”
The centerpiece of the night will be the 11th studio album, considered by many to be the Beatles’ best. Ed Ward of Rolling Stone said Abbey Road featured a “sound that could not possibly exist outside a studio.”
Well, we’ll see. Come join us for Abbey Road on April 25th at the Copernicus Center.
The Tributosaurus Beatles Project returns to the perfect place. The Copernicus Center Theater was the first movie palace in Chicago designed for talking pictures, and it has been restored to its’ original condition and outfitted for live performance. It is incredibly convenient - located just a block from the Kennedy on Lawrence, and 2 blocks from Metra and Blue Line stops at Jefferson Park Terminal. From the starry sky ceiling to the marble clad lobbies, everything about this theater impresses, and the acoustics are fantastic too.
The seating is assigned, so you’ll want to get yours ordered as soon as you can to reserve the section you want - and bring your kids to experience this - it is an ALL AGES show.
