Considered by many to be the No. 1 Beatles music show in the world, 1964 – The Tribute is returning to Brigham Young University-Idaho on Friday, April 29, for a concert in the Hart Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
With authentic stage gear, suits, mop tops and a performance full of No.1 hits, 1964 has been performing early Beatles music for more than 20 years. The group started out studying film and old TV shows and eventually perfected everything from the songs to mannerisms to accents. 1964 sold out Carnegie Hall three times and was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine as the No.1 Beatles tribute on the planet.
But 1964 does more than just play Beatles songs. They play the songs the way everyone remembers them – like the record – and they perform up to 90 minutes of electrifying songs from love ballads such as “And I Love Her” and “If I Fell” to high-energy hits such as “She Loves You” and “Twist and Shout.”
Sponsored by the Center Stage Performing Arts Series, tickets to the concert are $12 for the general public and $6 for BYU-Idaho students and employees. They can be purchased from the BYU-Idaho Ticket Office, over the phone at 496-3170, or online at www.byui.edu/tickets.
