Rock 'n' roll first became popular in America during the 1950s, much like the catch phrase "I got power like I'm Eisenhower." Hear something catchy with this GrouponLive deal to see 1964: The Tribute, a tribute show devoted to The Beatles, at Akoo Theatre at Rosemont. For $22, you get one ticket for main-floor seating in rows A–W or AA–HH on Saturday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $50.75 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
1964: The Tribute
The four music-makers of 1964: The Tribute re-create the sights and sounds of a mid-1960s Beatles concert in what Rolling Stone magazine calls the “best Beatles tribute on earth.” In addition to donning period costumes and Liverpool accents, the foursome draws on 20 years of Beatles research to make its portrayal of the mop-topped foursome more believable than George Washington's nicest wooden toupee. The act, which has toured internationally and played famous venues such as Carnegie Hall, helps fans dial back the decades with jangly early-catalog hits such as “She Loves You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” and “Please Please Me.”
