The studio-born and classically trained musicians of Classic Albums Live romanticize music’s long-playing, preshuffle heyday with live recreations of entire records, meticulously maintaining every note and cut of the original recordings. With the iconic opening bass line of "Come Together," the band dives into the entirety of The Beatles' 1969 album, Abbey Road. Placing it at No. 14 on its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Rolling Stone calls the work the Fab Four's "most polished album" and a "real goodbye" to their fans before their breakup. To cap off their career, each of The Beatles showcased some of his best work: during "Oh! Darling," Paul fills his vocals with wrenching, soulful desperation; John anguishes over a love his guitar later drowns out in the heavy, distorted riffs of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"; the sunny pop of "Here Comes the Sun" demonstrates the mastery of George's composition skills; and Ringo hammers on his drum set in "The End."

The Classics Album Live band unites for the melodious transitions across the latter half of the album—commonly referred to as the "Abbey Road Medley." The run weaves the absurdist imagery of mean Mr. Mustard and women climbing through bathroom windows with the beautiful, acoustical aphorism: "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." After the group wails through the happy, uplifting finale that is “The End” of Abbey Road, it peels through another set stuffed with more of The Beatles' greatest hits.

State Theatre

The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s when disco balls replaced light fixtures and complex hand-slaps were substituted for tickets. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster and terracotta exterior. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
