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 from "Can't Buy Me Love" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to "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 and have 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.

I am a great fan of the performing arts, dance in particular. However, I had never been to a tap "concert" before. Regardless, I was excited to see Mr. Glover - particularly given the title of the performance; paying tribute to the tap dance greats. I was disappointed to see Mr. Glover stay in nearly one spot on the stage. His method focused on the rythm of the tap rather than the movement of dance. I incorrectly assumed he would be moving more across the stage, and possibly recreating classic dances by Fred Astair or Gregory Hines. This was not the case. He tapped for an hour with only a few minor breaks. His stamina is impressive, but the show was not what I was expecting and I fear it was mis-labeled and/or mis marketed. Still, I am glad I went and thankful for the low ticket price through Goldstar. I would have been sorely disappointed if I had paid fill price for this performance.

Fabulous. He is unlike anything most people think about tap dancing. No music. Not alot of movement across the stage. But, his feet do remarkable things and he never rests. A fabulous concert with a strong statement about Trayvon Walker.
