Abbey Road Live! GA Theatre benefit


Abbey Road Live!, Athens' own Beatles cover band, will play a show to benefit the Georgia Theatre rebuild effort.  The band is scheduled to play the Classic Center on Friday, October 9th. That's John Lennon's birthday and it's the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' Abbey Road, which the band will play in its entirety, in addition to other Beatles classics.

According to the GA Theatre's web site, there will also be various "mystery guests" performing with the band.  The only clue to who those guests might be is that "they will include some very recognizable names from the Athens music scene."  Abbey Road Live!'s site is more straightforward, saying: "Confirmed guests include members of Pylon, Five Eight, R.E.M., Hope For Agoldensummer and more. . ." We'll have to wait and see who shows up.

Tickets for this show are on sale now through the Georgia Theatre's site. There are also VIP ticket packages that include a pre-show catered reception with the band. The show starts at 8 p.m.
