When: Sat., June 16 - Doors: 7 p.m. | Show: 8 p.m.
“1964” The Tribute, the global musical journey through music of The Beatles, returns to Union Bank & Trust Pavilion in Portsmouth on Saturday, June 16. The show, which features two 45-minute sets with an intermission, starts at 8 p.m., and doors open at 7 p.m.
“1964” The Tribute has for nearly 25 years performed around the world as what Rolling Stone Magazine has called the “Best Beatles Tribute on Earth.” “1964” The Tribute takes audiences to an era in rock history that will live in all of the hearts of music fans forever. They’re hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute in the world.
Choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era, “1964” astonishingly recreates an early 60’s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter. The band has performed almost 3,000 concerts, making it one of the best and tightest live performance on tour.
The quartet consists of Mark Benson (John Lennon), Mac Ruffing (Paul McCartney), Tom Work (George Harrison) and Bobby Potter (Ringo Starr). The band's mission is to accurately re-create the 1964 Beatles invasion of America. Members play a set of all early-Beatles music, with some middle-Beatles thrown in. Sometimes the group's costumes reflect the Beatles' early period, and sometimes members wear replicas of the Shea Stadium concert apparel from 1965. The concept is performing a show that gives an idea of what it was like to see the Beatles when they were touring.
