AMERICUS — The Friends of the Rylander Theatre present The McCartney Years at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Rylander Theatre, downtown.
Not just another Beatles cover band. International Paul McCartney tribute show sets its sights on downtown Americus. Hailed by the original Beatles promoter as “the best on the scene, The McCartney Years is a period-true, technically stunning and explosive live concert show that performs the music of Paul McCartney spanning two decades from The Beatles to Wings. Led by singer and performer, Yuri Pool, who is true to Sir Paul in his vocal stylings and presentation on tracks like Live and Let Die, Let it Be, The Long and Winding Road and Jet. His commitment to 100 percent live and accurate reproductions of McCartney’s concert experience started way back in his native Holland, continued through his stint as one of the bigger Beatles tribute acts in the UK and has set the standard for all who might follow in this significant body of work.
Audiences will delight in hits like Hey Jude, Band On The Run, Lady Madonna and many, many more, plus some of the deep cuts that McCartney wrote during the 1960s and 1970s, all performed to their original arrangements by a band that has entertained audiences worldwide and even has a personal accolade from former Wings Guitarist Denny Laine. This show is guaranteed to make you jump out of your seat to clap, sing and dance to the music by one of the most prolific artists of all time in this authentic, timeless live concert.
