Remember when you used to listen to an entire album? Classic Albums Live does. For the first time in popular music, the greatest albums from the 60s and 70s are recreated live on stage, note for note- cut for cut.
“This has never been done before,” says series producer, Craig Martin. “There’s a real thirst to hear these albums performed start to finish. For many of us this is the music we grew up with – the soundtrack of our lives.”
Classic Albums Live will be bringing two iconic albums to life with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of The Moon, February 22, and Led Zeppelin II, April 26, at the Burton Cummings Theatre.
Tickets are $22.50, $29.50 and $34.50, plus fees. Or purchase a two concert pass for $59.00, plus fees.
“All of our focus is put into the music.” says Martin, “We perform the works of the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin the same way an orchestra performs the works of Mozart. We don’t bother with imitation or impersonation. The bands are big – upwards of 11 pieces. We research these albums and go to great lengths to reproduce each and every sound live. We never use tape or computers. We’ll bring in a children’s choir, a sitar player a string quartet, whatever it takes to get it right.”
