Rain A Tribute to the Beatles

I was making a pot of soup when the phone rang.  “What are you doing?  Some tickets just dropped in our lap!”     It was Barb S asking if Steve and I wanted to see opening night of Rain   A Tribute to the Beatles.  When?   7:30.  I looked at my clock on the stove.  It was 6:38.  We had ten minutes to get down the hill to there house and off we went to Heinz Hall.  The roads weren’t too bad.  I figured no two hour delay in the morning.  After the show I walked across the 6th Street to document the fun evening. It was nostalgic.  Good energy.  Unexpected live music!  We stood and swayed, singing along   “All we are saying is give peace a chance.”  Given the snowstorm, I was surprised how full the theater was!

Tuesday night, downtown Pittsburgh, snow doesn't deter theater-goers.
See the dusting of snow on the awnings?

  1. Sounds like fun. My mom was in the hospital when the Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan Show the first time. We all stood around her bed watching them.

  2. I’m a huge fan!! From the first time I saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show – to hearing them daily in Canevin Hall cafeteria at Duquesne U. Still love the music!!!
    Happy snow day!!!

  3. Do you know why this tribute to the Beatles is called : RAIN?
    Poem with the same title in this week’s New Yorker!

  4. I saw the Beatles 3 times in person – once in Cincinnati, Ohio, once in Indianapolis, Indiana and again in Chicago! What a treat for a teenager in the ’60’s!!
