From the electrifying performances on The Ed Sullivan Show to the psychedelic pop experimentations of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -- all of the excitement and unforgettable music of a live Beatles show is brought to life in Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. With authentic costumes, multimedia effects and note-perfect live renditions of classic Beatles songs such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be," Rain is the biggest sensation since John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves first set foot on American soil. These spectacular musicians have won international acclaim for their uncanny reproduction of the Fab Four. Founded in Southern California in the mid-1970s, Rain has toured across the globe with a repertoire of more than 200 Beatles songs, including the most complex and challenging tunes that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for a live audience.

See and hear Gal Costa at the UCLA Live website.
Singer Gal Costa, one of the true voices and visionaries of modern Brazilian music, concentrates on the seductive intimacy and intricacy of samba and bossa novas in an exquisite duet concert with acclaimed guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves.
Costa’s groundbreaking recordings launched Brazil’s heady Tropicalia movement in the late ’60s; Songs by composers Caetano Veloso, Antonio Carlos Jobim and others were first made famous on Costa’s albums. She’ll revisit some of those hits, as well as music from her new albums, including “Bossa Tropical” and “Hoje,” both embraced by critics around the world.
Castro-Neves, who is also a noted composer- arranger-producer, had his first hit record in Brazil at age 16. A few years later he was at the forefront of the bossa nova invasion of the U.S., and ever since he has dazzled audiences with his distinctively warm, delicate and vivacious guitar.
