COLDWATER – Relive and experience the sight and sounds, moods and emotions of the Beatles’ influence on music and pop culture on Saturday, July 20, 2019 when the Beatles tribute band BritBeat brings their multimedia show to Tibbits Opera House.
BritBeat has spent countless hours to create a show that tells the story of the Beatles that is compelling, accurate, thought-provoking, fun and filled with the passion, moods and emotions of the sixties. Every detail has gone in to the creation of BritBeat – A Multimedia Concert Journey through Beatles Music History. Each era of the Beatles history is recreated on stage covering the early days at The Cavern Club in Liverpool, The Ed Sullivan Show, the Shea Stadium Concert, the psychedelic Sgt. Pepper era, the Magical Mystery Tour and Abbey Road Studios recording sessions with six costume changes. Dedicated to offering a unique and different look into the music and history of the Beatles, BritBeat is more than a tribute band, it is a theatrical event.
Highlights of BritBeat’s touring history include performing with Herman’s Hermits, The Buckinghams, The Rascals, Jefferson Starship, Micky Dolenz, Blood, Sweat & Tears, The Beach Boys, The Guess Who, The Grass Roots and Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. One of the Beatles actually performed with BritBeat at U.S. Cellular Field for the 40th Anniversary of the Beatles at Comiskey Park. That Beatle would be Pete Best, the drummer for the Beatles before he was replaced by Ringo Starr in 1962.
In 2014 BritBeat was chosen by the State of Indiana to recreate the 1964 concert by the Beatles at the Indianapolis State Fair. In the same building, on the same stage, with the same microphones used by the Beatles, BritBeat performed a 50th Anniversary Concert at the Indianapolis State Fair Coliseum for thousands of fans in attendance, many of whom had attended the 1964 concert there 50 years earlier. It was quite a moment for a band paying tribute to their musical icons.
The concert at Tibbits on July 20 caps off a day full of fun in Coldwater, with the downtown ArtWalk that will feature artists, vintage vendors, hands-on art stations for kids, food trucks, and live entertainment leading up to BritBeat, which begins at 7:30pm.
This event includes a cash bar along with an “On Your Feet” section for audience members who enjoy a livelier viewing experience. Ticket prices range from $20 to $34 (including fees). Tickets go on sale to Tibbits members on April 22, and are available at the Tibbits Admin offices at 93 W. Chicago St in Coldwater or by calling 517-278-6029. Tickets go on sale to the general public on April 29 and may also be purchased by visiting Tibbits.org at that time. This performance will be held at Tibbits Opera House, located at 14 S. Hanchett Street, Coldwater, MI 49036.
