The Fab Fourever set to conquer The Clova
Six months after they conquered America, the Beatles made their first – and only – appearance in Vancouver.
It was Aug. 22, 1964, and Beatlemania was in full throttle; the screaming girls, the fainting fans, and the threat of a riot forced the band off the stage at Empire Stadium.
We've been waiting for an encore ever since.
This Thursday and Friday, the Clova Cinema plays host to the premiere Beatles tribute band – The Fab Fourever, a group of self-confessed Beatles "Super fans" Jody Tenant (Paul), Kevin Davey (John), Jean-Luc Perron (George), Paul Kaszonyi (Ringo) and Blake Mackay (keyboards/sound effects).
They'll sing all of the Beatles' memorable live hits, without overdubs or pre-recorded music, from She Loves You, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and A Hard Day's Night to Yellow Submarine, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields Forever, A Day in the Life, and Hey Jude.
Friday's performance at the Clova in Cloverdale is a sellout, but there are still tickets available for Thursday night's (June 5) show.
Whether your favourite was John, Paul, George or Ringo, you'll want to grab a seat and sing and scream along. The Fab Four Forever is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles historic concert at Empire Stadium Vancouver by playing the entire Vancouver set, from start to finish.
The band's first set takes fans on a journey from the Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan Show to their scream-filled appearance in Vancouver.
The second set includes selections from their studio albums, such as Magical Mystery Tour, Sgt. Pepper, the White Album, Let it Be and Abbey Road.
The show starts at 7 p.m., doors open 6:30 p.m. Adults: $26, kids 12 and under: $15. Tickets are available only at the box office, when it's open. The Clova Cinema is located at 5732 176 Street.
