The Weber State University (WSU) Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) (www.weber.edu/cah) is pleased to announce RAIN – A Tribute to the Beatles concert. RAIN will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in the Austad Auditorium at Weber State University. The Broadway musical concert takes audiences on a musical journey through the life and legacy of the Beatles. RAIN is the longest running tribute act and performances are replicas of Beatles music. Songs performed by RAIN include: “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together” and “Hey Jude.”
“We are delighted to have RAIN coming to Ogden, Utah,” said Frank Bradshaw, interim director of the Office of Cultural Affairs at Weber State University. “It’s a memorable experience for everyone living in the Northern Utah area and we hope this is a tradition residents can look forward to every year,” said Bradshaw.
RAIN originated in 1975 in Laguna Beach, California. Founder and manager of RAIN, Mark Lewis, started the rock ‘n’ roll tribute band when he discovered a group performing Beatles covers and helped turn them into the ultra-professional group known as RAIN. In 2010, RAIN became a Broadway hit and performed 300 shows. RAIN provides audiences with the real experience of a Beatles concert and the opportunity to rock out with ‘John Lennon,’ ‘Paul McCartney,’ ‘George Harrison’ and ‘Ringo Starr.’
“We are blessed to perform for such enthusiastic and loving crowds throughout the country,” said Mark Lewis, founder and manager of RAIN. “This is a great opportunity for myself and the band to share our love of the Beatles with others,” said Lewis.
In addition, the Val A. Browning Center in partnership with the university’s student food bank, Weber Cares Food Pantry, will be collecting non-perishable food items. Patrons are encouraged to bring one non-perishable food item per attendee. All items will be donated to Weber Cares Food Pantry, which are provided to all students needing assistance: http://www.weber.edu/ccel/weber-cares.html.
