Beatles Tribute to Recreate 1964 at Waterside Theatre
The Beatles are coming! Or at least the next best thing, as the world’s top tribute to the fab four will take the stage live in concert for the first time on the Outer Banks this month.
The Lost Colony is preparing to open its 2014 “PNC Presents: Live At The Waterside Concert Series” with a little Beatlemania. 1964: The Tribute takes their audiences on a musical journey to an era in rock history that will live in all of our hearts forever. They are hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute in the world. “1964” recreates an early 60’s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter.
February marked the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, so it’s good timing for a top Beatles cover band to swoop through the area. 1964: The Tribute, a band with Mark Benson as John Lennon, Mac Ruffing as Paul McCartney, Tom Work as George Harrison and Bobby Potter as Ringo Starr, will perform Beatles hits for two hours. This is all P.S.P (pre-Sgt. Pepper) stuff. Think mop tops, skinny suits and period instruments with a set list including She Loves You, This Boy, All My Loving, I Saw Her Standing There and I Want to Hold Your Hand. Memories will abound!
Rolling Stone Magazine calls them “The Best Beatles Tribute on Earth”.
Ace Outer Banks Hardware is generously sponsoring the concert and Kilmarlic Golf Club and The Dunes Restaurant are hospitality sponsors.
Lost Colony CEO Bill Coleman says: “We can’t wait to get the music happening this year. Our line-up is simply stellar and with the other concerts happening on the Outer Banks this year we think it’s going to be a really fun summer for music lovers on the Outer Banks. Later this month we have the Red Clay Ramblers and Molasses creek and then later in the summer Jars of Clay, The Lovin’ Spoonful, and Marty Stuart will be on our stage. How cool is that!”
1964: The Tribute will be live in concert at the Wateside Theatre on Roanoke Island on Sunday, June 15.
Tickets are $30, and a limited number of VIP tickets will be available at $60. VIP tickets are extremely limited and include premium seating in the front few rows, as well as exclusive access to the VIP lounge beginning one hour prior to the show.
