Beatles vs. Stones - A Musical Showdown, performing Wednesday, January 23 at the Boulder Theater, is offering complimentary tickets to federal employees impacted by the government shutdown. The show starts at 8:00 pm.
Federal employees are limited to two complimentary tickets per person and must show a valid government ID. This offer is based on availability and tickets may be obtained at the box office on the day of show only. The offer is valid if the government shutdown is still in place on the day of the show.
“Federal employees are struggling without paychecks and coming to a concert might take their minds off it for an evening. We’re happy to do it,” said Chris LeGrand, who plays “Mick Jagger” in the show.
The Boulder show is part of a 125 stop tour of the U.S., Australia and Canada and has been touring since 2011.The show also performs long term residencies for a number of the Harrah’s Casino properties. The production includes some of the more popular songs from the two rock pioneers and covers the scope of their musical careers, although the set list for Satisfaction usually includes Rolling Stones songs up to the 1980s.
During the two-hour show, the bands perform three sets each, trading places in quick set changes and ending the night with an all-out encore involving both bands. The band members have their outfits custom-made, since avid fans know exactly what the Beatles and Stones wore onstage during different time periods in their careers. There’s a lot of good-natured jabbing between the bands as well.
