Debra & Me on the right
We didn't know what to expect but when 4 Beatles impersonators came on stage I knew I was in for a treat. Seeing the people dance & shout & there were even ladies lined up at the edge of the stage. I wonder if they were there when the real Beatles played there. People went pretty wild & were breaking it down 60's style but I really can't imagine how insane it must have been in 1964. The music going, the hair bobbing, the cute British accents singing, & the screams of the die hard fans. Must have been Awesome!
Now I am a Beatles fan but I HONESTLY didn't realize how many songs they actually have! They played 22 songs AND this was just from their earlier days. "Yellow Submarine" did make an appearance tho. The best moment was them telling us to take out our phones and call someone we love to listen to "Eleanor Rigby" with us on speaker phone. I called CJ & that is actually one of his favorite songs so he was happy to hear it. =)
What was pretty cool & sad at the same time was at some point someone screamed out, "We miss you John!", when the John Lennon impersonator was singing a solo. It made me cry a lil bit. Poor man.
One of my ongoing New Year's resolutions is to take on as many random opportunities as I can. I think I'm starting the year off very well with going to this concert. It was alot of fun & something I'm sure Debra & I will talk about for years. Next year we're definitely going to get more people to go!
Are you a Beatles Fan? I'd love to hear!
