All You Need Is Love: A Beatles Tribute Concert
February 7, 1964. Pan Am flight 101 from London lands in New York City. On board, four mop-topped young men gawk at the teeming throngs waiting at Idlewild Airport. Said Sir Paul McCartney of the Beatles’ first trip to the United States, “There were millions of kids at the airport, which nobody had expected. . . We thought, ‘Wow! God, we have really made it.’” Precisely 50 years later, Beatles fans can relive that thrill with All You Need Is Love: A Beatles Tribute Concert, a lavish tribute concert featuring classic songs, bright lights, and the Fab Four’s original accents, on loan from the Hard Rock Cafe.
The show is performed by more than 20 seasoned Beatles tribute musicians, who tackle every track from Love, the soundtrack to the Cirque du Soleil show of the same name. Collected and remixed by the band’s longtime producer George Martin (called “the fifth Beatle” by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame), the album—and concert—swoops through kaleidoscopic mashups and reinterpreted classics, from a hybrid of “Within You Without You” and “Tomorrow Never Knows” to an acoustic version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” with mournful strings, as well as favorites including “Eleanor Rigby,” “I Am The Walrus.” and “Yesterday.”<p>
A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. “The auditorium is, in its chaste way,” architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater’s website, “the handsomest of any Boston playhouse.”<p>
