THE WHITE ALBUM CONCERT to Play Tonight in Melbourne
Due to huge public demand, third shows are now on sale for the White Album Concerts in Melbourne tonight 17 July and in Sydney on Sunday 20 July.
The White Album Concerts feature four of Australia's greatest rock'n'roll showmen - Chris Cheney, The Living End, Phil Jamieson of Grinspoon, Tim Rogers from You Am I and ARIA award winner singer/songwriter Josh Pyke performing the entire album with an all-star 17 piece rock orchestra.
The Beatles' most challenging and stylistically varied collection of songs has been taken apart and reassembled track by track by four singers at the peak of their powers.
Coming after India, but before the split, The White Album was the sound of John, Paul, George and Ringo throwing everything they'd learned into their musical blender. This major work bursts with variety, creativity, experimentation, and the genius of The Beatles during one of their most intense, fertile, periods. It is a timeless album, yet very much of its time.
Its 30 songs veer from the populist stomp of Back in the USSR and the mind-bending Happiness is a Warm Gun to the melodious sorrow of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, the ska pop fun of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, and the hard rock prototype Helter Skelter.
