Beatles Tribute RAIN Begins Tonight at Royal Alexandra Theatre
Direct from their phenomenally successful Broadway engagement, the internationally-acclaimed Beatles concert, RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, makes its return engagement to the Royal Alexandra Theatre, tonight, March 25 - 30, 2014.
As "the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!" (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets that include brand new LED, High-Definition screens and multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2014 Tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics ("I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Hard Day's Night," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Let It Be," "Come Together," "Hey Jude" and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!
RAIN cast member, Ian B. Garcia, was born in the exotic coastal town of Viña del Mar, Chile, and currently lives in Toronto, Canada.
Self-taught in voice, guitar, piano and bass he has evolved over the years into a versatile and mature multi - instrumentalist. In 2002 while performing locally he caught the attention of a Beatles tribute act that was in need of a Paul McCartney. The next 5 years would see Garcia honing in and becoming a professional entertainer as he would gradually grow into his mentor's character.
"I have learned so much about playing Sir Paul, that my musical abilities have gone to places I could never have imagined" says Garcia. "It's those moments like getting the phone call to perform in and be a part of RAIN that I respect my line of work and the gift that I have been given. "I am constantly evolving as a person and as a performer. To eventually tackle the complex musical genius of McCartney in RAIN came as an inevitable challenge." Garcia proudly states.
