Classic Albums Live reanimates the long-playing, pre-shuffle heyday of music in meticulous live recreations of the world’s most beloved rock albums. Casting aside stage gimmickry and impersonations, a band of seasoned rock pros rebuilds every single note, intonation, and otherworldly vocal phrasing of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of The Moon. Starting with “Speak to Me,” the performers surge onward through “The Great Gig in the Sky” before turning their instruments upside down to launch into “Money” and the rest of Side B.
Classic Albums Live’s collective of studio-born and classically trained musicians has metamorphosed into icons as diverse as Michael Jackson and The Beatles during nearly a decade of touring the continent, tackling each oeuvre “with the reverence of classical musicians,” according to the Orlando Sentinel’s Jim Abbott, who praised the act as an “unheralded gem.” The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts showcases its own variety of artistic restoration with a glass pavilion, grand chandeliers, and a terra cotta façade refurbished to accurately reflect the opulence of the theatre’s 1904 beginnings, when a rail line once extended to its current balcony.
