Calling All Beatles Fans

Visit my Arkansas every Monday for a look at what’s going on in the world of arts and culture.
If you missed the smash-hit RAIN last year, you have a chance to catch it this spring in northwest Arkansas. RAIN: A Tribute To The Beatles will be at Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville for a 7 p.m. show on May 7. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m., this Friday, Jan. 20. Tickets range from $38 to $54 depending on seating.

According to a WAC press release, “RAIN covers the Fab Four from their very first Ed Sullivan Show appearance through the Abbey Road album, through the psychedelic late 60s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. RAIN is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience; a fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials from the 1960s lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups. “ It is part of WAC’s 20th Anniversary Specials. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Walton Arts Center Box Office at 479-443-5600 or by visiting For more information on RAIN, visit
