Abbey Road LIVE! coming to Coastal Carolina University

January 12, 2009

Four musicians from Athens, Ga., will recreate the music of the Beatles in "Abbey Road LIVE! The Magical Mystery Tour" on Thursday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Coastal Carolina University's Wheelwright Auditorium.

Reserved seat tickets for the concert are $20 and $25, with discounts for children, teens, alumni, seniors, and the faculty, staff and students of Horry-Georgetown Technical College and Coastal Carolina University.

Abbey Road LIVE! is not your typical Beatles look-alike tribute act, but rather brings to life many of the more mature Beatles songs in a raw and spirited fashion, while remaining true to the original recordings. The studio masterpieces from such classic albums as Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album were never performed live by the Beatles, who stopped touring in 1966.

Since 2002, Abbey Road LIVE! has performed the music of the Beatles at clubs, theaters, festivals and on concert stages. Initially a tribute to the monumental "Abbey Road" album, the show has expanded its scope to include more than 100 Beatles tunes, from all eras of the Fab Four's career. The band specializes in complete, start-to-finish album performances of masterpieces such as "Abbey Road," "Magical Mystery Tour" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band."

Abbey Road LIVE! features four all-star musicians. Collectively, the band members have recorded and toured with Cosmic Charlie, Charlie Mars and Fuzzy Sprouts. Individual band members have also collaborated with acts such as Indigo Girls, Juliana Hatfield, Mike Houser (Widespread Panic), Danielle Howle and Lemonheads.
