Beatles vs. Stones Returns To Iowa
It's an epic showdown when songs from the Beatles and Rolling Stones are featured at the Paramount Theatre Sunday, September 20.
For decades, the battle has raged: Beatles or Stones? Through their heyday, fans accused London’s Rolling Stones of stealing ideas -- even entire albums – from their Liverpool counterparts. At the same time, the Beatles secretly envied the Stones’ “bad boy” image and attitude, often copying their style. Both bands are unmistakably great, scoring an array of hits that changed musical history, but only one can be the best. The most infamous rivalry in rock and roll will be played out for you as Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Showdown returns to the Paramount.
Members of both nationally touring tribute bands, Abbey Road and Satisfaction - The International Rolling Stones Show, have taken great care to recreate the experience of seeing these incredible bands live so as to please casual fans and purists alike. That ‘All You Need is Love’ spirit appears to be lost on Messrs. Legrand and Clarke, who continue trading barbs. “The Beatles wrote Let It Be, but the Stones countered with Let It Bleed!” snarls Chris.
Tickets go on-sale this Friday, July 31st at 10 a.m. through CREventsLive.com and the Paramount Theatre ticket office. Beatles vs. Stones will follow the venue’s recently announced Return to Live plan. All guests will be expected to follow new health and safety guidelines including wearing a face covering when moving around, maintaining distance between groups and staying home if sick.
