Here's some "RAIN" you will LOVE! Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Direct from Broadway, the next best thing to seeing the Beatles, RAIN comes to the INB Performing arts Center, Tuesday January 29th at 7:30. RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance in this multi-media concert, that's as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (I Want To Hold Your Hand, Hard Day's Night, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Let It Be, Come Together, Hey Jude and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

With every step he wondered about the people whose feet had walked in exactly the same footsteps. He wondered if their spirits still lingered there today. And so he photographed ghosts.
