What You'll Get
Live concerts are meticulously coordinated events, with dedicated staff ensuring each instrument is tuned, each mic is working, and each band member is set in the upright and locked position. Keep their hard work from going to waste with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $38, you get one ticket to see Classic Albums Live: Dark Side of the Moon at the Hippodrome Theatre at France-Merrick Performing Arts Center on Saturday, January 14, at 8 p.m. (up to a $76.75 value, including all fees). Reserved seating will be located in the orchestra section.
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 but retaining the album's eerie resonances with Meet Me in St. Louis, a band of seasoned rock pros rebuilds every single note, intonation, and otherworldly vocal phrasing of Pink Floyd’s 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 Hippodrome Theatre showcases its own variety of artistic restoration with sweeping gilded arches, chandeliers, and murals refurbished to accurately reflect the opulence of the 1914-built former movie palace.
