Countdown to Life is Beautiful 2014: Las Vegas Philharmonic & The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil perform a Tribute to The Beatles

7 Oct

17 days until the second Life is Beautiful festival in Downtown Las Vegas, October 24-26! If you haven’t gotten your tickets, do so at www.lifeisbeautiful.com and if you have, awesome and I can’t wait to see you!

If there is one performance you can’t miss, it’s this one. I’ m talking about legendary, one time only performance.  In honor of The Beatles’ 50th Anniversary of coming to Las Vegas, I’ve gotten the Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra and The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil to join forces for a 40 minute tribute to the Fab Four.  It’s going to break down like this, on Sunday afternoon you are going to want to make your way to the main stage where the Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra will perform a 20 minute solo set of Beatles songs before being joined on stage by the cast of LOVE for an incredible performance of acrobatics and dancers meets symphony. Yes you read that correct, this is all going to happen at once, Cirque du Soleil cast members will be flying, Beatles music will be playing and you as a spectators are going to witness an incredible never before seen show.

If I could begin to explain how excited all parties involved are, you wouldn’t believe me.  Everyone is pouring their blood, sweat and tears into this performance and I promise you this is going to be legendary.

Me personally, this performance is the coolest thing I’ve ever had the opportunity to work on. And yes, I realize I work for a festival so I’m not joking when I say how amazing this opportunity is.  Not only is LOVE my favorite show in Las Vegas, I clearly am a fan of The Beatles, Giles Martin working on the arrangement for this performance is just WOW and the opportunity to work with the Philharmonic is such an incredible one (these musicians are uber talented and hearing them in rehearsals gave me chills);  this  magical in so many ways.

Want to read a little more, check out this article from my buddy John Katsilometes who interviewed the great, Giles Martin about the upcoming performance and arranging the music specifically for this show.
