Beatles tribute shows: One says goodbye, two more say hello




Have you heard the news today? Oh boy.

This town loves its Beatles tribute concerts (see here, here, here and here), and unfortunately, we've lost a good one: 1964: The Tribute, which was scheduled to perform Friday at the Ritz Ybor in Tampa, has been canceled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

But hey, let's take this sad song and make it better. Two more top-notch Beatles tributes are still coming to Tampa Bay in 2011. They are:

-- The Fab Four, a Beatles tribute so acclaimed they've been cast in Robert Zemeckis' upcoming Yellow Submarine remake, are performing at 9 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Club at Treasure Island. A limited number of non-club member tickets are available for $30; click here or call (888) 695-0888 for ticket info.

-- The Broadway-based Rain - A Tribute to the Beatles is returning to the Straz Center for the Performing Arts on June 2. Tickets start at $39.50. Click here for details.
