Here comes the Rain again! Rain: A Tribute to The Beatles will make its Broadway debut this fall with a limited 12-week run of performances at the Neil Simon Theatre at 250 West 52nd Street. A special preview performance will begin Tuesday, October 19. The official opening will commence Tuesday, October 26 at 6:30 PM and run through Sunday, January 9, 2011.

Rain marks the first time The Beatles' music has been licensed on Broadway. While for the past 45 years the music of The Beatles has touched millions of people around the world, the Fab Four were experienced live in concert by very few. The group's final concert tour of 1966 was long before the release of the legendary later albums that define the band's career. Rainbrings The Beatles' incredible songs to a whole new audience of music lovers.
Rain encompasses the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage. From the group's early days on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 through Abbey Road, Rain highlights the unforgettable songs in the iconic group's career, some of which have never been performed in a live concert setting. Rain features "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Hard Days Night," "Yesterday," "Twist and Shout," "With A Little Help From My Friends" and many more; see the set list below.
"I Want To Hold Your Hand"
"Hard Day's Night"
"Twist and Shout"
"With A Little Help From My Friends"
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
"When I'm 64"
"I Am The Walrus"
