"RAINY" Day in Chicago

Well, the weather in Chicago may have been rainy, but that didn't dampen the spirits of four BEATLE fans. I had purchasd the tickets as a Christmas gift for Bob. Ben's mom bought the tickets for him and Kelli for his birthday last week. The four of us headed into the city, went to the afternoon performance and finished the day with dinner at the Italian Village.

As for "RAIN" - the name came from an unknown Beatle song on the flip side of Paperback Rider". The show was fantastic - covering all the years from the Ed Sullivan Show through Abbey Road. Four costume changes (including Sgt. Pepper). The audience spent most of the show on their feet, singing and dancing in the aisles.

During the finale of HEY JUDE, "Paul" asked everyone OVER 50 to sing and then everyone UNDER 18. It showed how many generations their music had covered.

How is it that you get the best pictures of Ben? He is always making a goofy face in mine! I heard you all had a great time and that the show was fantastic!
