Celebrate 50 years of The Beatles in America with Rain: A Tribute To The Beatles live Monday, March 17 at the West Virginia University Creative Arts Center. Showtime is set for 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the Mountainlair and CAC box offices, ticketmaster.com and by phone at 304-293-SHOW and 800-745-3000.

Experience the show The Associated Press called “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!” Rain performs the full range of The Beatles’ discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs the group recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. Together longer than the original band, Rain has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance in this multi-media concert, that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be, “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

The Beatles first sent shockwaves through the American music landscape 50 years ago this month, landing at JFK airport to a sea of adoring fans and delivering a landmark performance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Take a journey to yesterday with this multi-media theatrical event that showcases a day in the life of the Beatles phenomenon. Don’t miss the show that will have you twisting and shouting right here in Morgantown.

Showtime is set for 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 17. Tickets range from $35 to $55, depending on seat location and availability. WVU student tickets are $28 with valid ID at the campus box offices (one discounted ticket per valid ID). Tickets are on sale now at the Mountainlair and Creative Arts Center box offices, online at ticketmaster.com, or by calling 304-293-SHOW and 800-745-3000.
