The Beatles Play The Levitt!

Last year, the Levitt Pavilion drew a great crowd for an Abba tribute band performance.

The Fab Four come to Westport on Sunday. Sort of.

It was so successful, the Levitt kicks off its 38th season this Sunday (June 26, 7 p.m.) with a Beatles tribute.  “The Cast of Beatlemania” is — according to a press release — “the first, original and only complete representation of the musical force called the Beatles. ”

The show features members who starred in the Broadway production.  They’ve performed in all 50 states and over 20 countries.

In years past the Levitt has presented Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, the Beach Boys, America and Buckwheat Zydeco.

The Beatles were a bit out of the Levitt’s price range.  Besides, they broke up shortly before the outdoor pavilion was built.  Plus, 2  are now dead.  Still, a tribute show isn’t too shabby.

Especially when admission is free.

One response to “The Beatles Play The Levitt!

  1. I think it would be truly fitting if they had a Remains tribute band as the opening act. This is, after all, the 45th anniversary of the last-ever Beatles tour.
