7/26 - FleetBoston Pavilion

Recommended Posts

Here's the show info from the FleetBoston web site:

"A Walk Down Abbey Road: A Tribute to the Beatles" returns to FleetBoston Pavilion on Friday, July 26th, 2002 for its second outing. The show, whose inaugural edition was hailed by the Boston Herald as a "highly entertaining show" and "a rousing success," returns with the same formula that created magic the first time around. Half of the show the group will play their own solo hits and the other half is comprised of all Beatles hits.

This years line-up sees the return of the master of ceremonies Alan Parsons, engineer on the Beatles classic albums Abbey Road and Let it Be, and a solo artist whose hits include" Eye in the Sky" and "Games People Play." Jack Bruce, a Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame member, legendary bass player for Cream, and a key innovator in rock music, joins Alan. Eric Carmen, whose hits "All by Myself" and "Almost Paradise (Love Theme from Footloose)" are among the most played songs in US pop history. Christopher Cross, Oscar and Grammy winning songwriter whose hits include "Sailing" and "Arthur's Theme." And Mark Farner, songwriter and lead singer of Grand Funk Railroad, a seminal rock group who sold out Shea Stadium faster than the Beatles.

These great musicians, together with a veteran backing band comprised of Godfrey Townsend, John Beck and Steve Murphy, play the entire concert together as one supergroup. The Mercury News noted of the format: "How many cover bands are there where every member has gold records on the wall?" The answer is not many.

The first half of the show the group plays their own solo hits. Collectively this "band" has sold over one hundred million albums and has played in front of millions of fans. The second half of the show they play classic hits from the entire Beatles catalogue.

Maybe you can come to the one in New Hampshire on the 23rd! Because of the totally GOOFY way the seats are set up and sold there, you still may be able to get a good seat. I just checked and row K, seat 4 was available -- believe it or not that is one seat away from the stage.

And yeah I understand how second row sometimes just isn't good enough... :)
