Abbey Road performs Beatles tribute

The debate between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones has been going on ever since they first crossed paths on the charts 53 years ago. The argument at the time, and one that still persists, was that the Beatles were a pop group and the Stones were a rock band: the boys next door vs. the bad boys of rock. These two legendary bands will engage in an on-stage, throw down - a musical 'showdown' on February 21 at the Bankhead Theater courtesy of tribute bands Abbey Road and Satisfaction - The International Rolling Stones Show.

Taking the side of the Fab Four is Abbey Road, one of the country's top Beatles tribute bands. With brilliant musicianship and authentic costumes and gear, Abbey Road plays beloved songs spanning the Beatles' career. They face off against renowned Stones tribute band Satisfaction - The International Rolling Stones Show, who offer a faithful rendition of the music and style of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the bad boys of the British Invasion.

“Music fans never had a chance to see the Beatles and the Rolling Stones perform on the same marquee,” said Chris Legrand, who plays “Mick Jagger” in the show. Now, music aficionados can watch this debate play out on stage.”

The International Rolling Stones Show focuses on the Rolling Stones

The Livermore show is part of a 110 stop tour of the U.S., Australia and Canada and has been touring since 2011. The production includes some of the more popular songs from the two rock pioneers and covers the scope of their musical careers, although the set list for Satisfaction usually includes Rolling Stones songs up to the 1980s.

During the two-hour show, the bands perform three sets each, trading places in quick set changes and ending the night with an all-out encore involving both bands. The band members have their outfits custom-made. There’s a lot of good-natured jabbing between the bands as well.

“Without Beatlemania, the Stones might still be a cover band in London,” said Chris Overall, who plays "Paul". “There’s no question that the Beatles set the standard.”

“It’s just a fun time and a cool back-and-forth nonstop show,” Overall added.

The 8 p.m. show will be held at the Bankhead Theater, 2400 First Street in downtown Livermore on February 21. Tickets may be purchased at the box office, online at www.bankheadtheater.org or by calling 373-6800.
