Even though Sir Paul will not be there to join in the festivities, this concert is sure to blow the roof off the Bass Hall. Imagine a packed house full of Beatles and McCartney fans reminiscing about times when the Fab Four was still together. Hopefully, it will not be like the Ed Sullivan Show, where music lovers could not hear the band through the screams of love-stricken teenage girls.
While not normally a fan of tribute shows, I am a huge classical music aficionado - after all, I did major in music performance during my college years. The Fort Worth Symphony is full of talented players that will easily bring the music of Sir Paul to life.
Vocalist Tony Kishman has been singing songs of the Fab Four ever since he toured with the Broadway hit Beatlemania.
In addition to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and Tony Kishman, the lineup will include:
- Jim Owen - keyboards, guitar, bass and vocals
- John Brosnan - guitar
- John Merjave - guitar
- Chris Camilleri - Drums and vocals
Songs promised to be performed include:
- Hey Jude
- Penny Lane
- Live and Let Die
- My Love
- Uncle Albert
- Let It Be
- Maybe I’m Amazed
- Hello Good-Bye
- Long and Winding Road
- Get Back
- Silly Love Songs
- Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club
Three shows are scheduled: Friday, January 20 at 8pm; Saturday, January 21 at 8pm; Sunday, January 22 at 2pm.
