The Beatles played The Benedum last year to celebrate my 50th reunion. This was a blog that I posted last year. This Saturday, September 19th we will again present Relive The Beatles ’64. Beatlemania Now was so great last year that we had to give them more time this year and they will be doing an 80 min set along with Michael Brown as Eddie Cochran and Buddy Holly, Lee Alverson as Jerry Lee Lewis and Garry Moore as Little Richard.

DiCesare’s new memoir book completes Beatles Week tribute
PITTSBURGH – Fifty years ago, the Beatles came to America…. and made their only Pittsburgh appearance at the Civic Arena on September 14, 1964.
Legendary concert promoter Pat DiCesare, who brought the band to Pittsburgh for their historic performance, will reprise his role by hosting a series of events, including a tribute concert featuring Beatlemania Now, September 13th at the Benedum Center.
“The impact of the Beatles cannot be overstated,” said DiCesare. “The Fab Four startled the ears and energized the lives of virtually all who heard them.
“Their arrival triggered the musical revolution of the sixties, introducing a modern sound and viewpoint that parted ways with the world of the previous decade.”
DiCesare said that American Tour ’64, the name of his tribute concert featuringBeatlemania Now, will feature all the classic Beatle’s hits live with a full stage light and multimedia show.
