Crossings brings the tribute band back after a successful concert in February.
This concert is called “Some Are Dead and Some Are Living.” The theme acknowledges each individual who made up the Beatles. The first act focuses on John Lennon and George Harrison, who are both deceased. The second act celebrates the two members still alive, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
The Revolution 5 will showcase the songs the band members brought to the music world as Beatles and as solo artists.
Visuals are a part of the group’s performances and will be used in this concert to highlight important moments in the personal and artistic lives of Beatles members.
The show title comes from the song “In My Life,” written by Lennon with contributions from McCartney. Released on the 1965 album “Rubber Soul,” it is ranked 23rd on Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" as well as fifth on the list of the Beatles’ greatest songs.
Revolution 5 doesn’t impersonate the Beatles in appearance. Instead, members strive to bring audiences a show that recaptures the energy and legendary sound of a live Beatles performance.
Guitarists Aaron Barthel and Louis Winskowski, singer Grant F. Haake, drummer Charlie Phoenix and John Tetrault, who plays guitar, bass, keyboard, percussion, mandolin, ukulele, and saxophone, make up the group.
Tickets are $24 in advance, $28 day of show. To reserve tickets, call 507-732-7616 or stop in to Crossings at 320 East Ave., Zumbrota. For more information, visit www.crossingsatcarnegie.com.
