IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO TODAY Beatles Tribute is Coming to the Kauffman Center

An impressive cast of musicians is coming together for a special tribute to The Beatles' iconic "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" albums on March 27, 2022.

Audiences will revel in timeless Beatles favorites and other classic rock 'n' roll hits performed by Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Joey Molland (Badfinger), Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts), Denny Laine (founding member of The Moody Blues and Wings) and Jason Scheff (Chicago).

Tickets for It Was 50 Years Ago Today range from $49 to $109 plus applicable fees. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 14. Tickets will be available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222 or online at kauffmancenter.org.

ABOUT IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO TODAY

These legendary artists will perform their respective hits, like Todd Rundgren's "I Saw the Light," Christopher Cross' "Sailing," Badfinger's "No Matter What" and more alongside Beatles classics from the band's "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" albums.

"The Moody Blues met The Beatles in the early '60s and were invited to join them on their second British tour," Denny Laine said. "The thought of performing some of their classic songs with such a revered cast on this tour will bring back not only those moments in time but also fond memories as a member of Wings. I trust that we will pay due credit to their timeless legacy by bringing back that music to everyone who joins us for this special ride."

Producer Toby Ludwig says this is an experience that can be shared by all. Flower Power Concerts has produced more than 20 years of Beatles tributes featuring some of the greatest voices and musicians available.

"The songbook of these albums should be our best one yet," Ludwig said.
