From a press release:

Today, The Fab Four: The Ultimate Tribute and Emporium Presents announced that the acclaimed Beatles tribute act will soon be back on the road with a 19-stop tour, including a date at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Oct. 30.

With uncanny, note-for-note live renditions of classics such as “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Yesterday,” “A Day in the Life,” “Twist and Shout,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and “Hey Jude,” the California-based band makes audiences think they are watching the real thing.

Their incredible stage performances include three costume changes, representing every era of The Beatles’ ever-changing career. This loving tribute has amazed audiences in countries around the world, including Japan, Australia, France, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Germany, Mexico, and Brazil.

In 2013, the Fab Four received an Emmy for their PBS special “The Fab Four: The Ultimate Tribute,” filmed at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in California in 2012.
