Classic Albums Live Brings ABBEY ROAD To The McCallum!
Just the mention of The Beatles album Abbey Road makes you think of another time; a time when music mattered. These days new music doesn't survive; it's gone by lunch. The McCallum Theatre presents Classic Albums Live in their production of "Abbey Road" on Sunday, November 18, at 8:00pm.
Abbey Road saw the Beatles let go. It was their swan song album. They wanted to make something that would last and end their legacy with grace and cool. No other album picks up a full head of steam like Abbey Road. Despite splitting up, the lads beckoned us to "Come Together" right from the onset. And they crescendo and say goodbye with philosophy that not only stands the test of time, but tattoos itself onto our hearts "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make."
They were still young men when they created Abbey Road. We've all read about the infighting and disagreements. Ten years together within a golden cage of idolatry, and you're bound to have some conflict. And yet they still leant themselves so lovingly to each other's songs. That defines character.
When Classic Albums Live performs Abbey Road, they go deeper than just playing it note for note and cut for cut. They've had that part down for years. They go deep and go into the album and fuse their DNA with it. There's a beauty that needs to accompany every performance of Abbey Road. Classic Albums Live has found that beauty and takes the greatest pride in sharing it with everyone at the show and enjoying the smiles returning to the faces.
Tickets for this performances are priced at $57, $37, $27 and $22. Tickets are available at the Theatre's website at www.mccallumtheatre.com or by calling the McCallum Theatre Box Office at (760) 340-ARTS.
