FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Classic Albums Live – Dark Side of the Moon Comes to The Wilbur

WHAT: On Friday, July 17th, 2015, Classic Albums Live – Dark Side of the Moon is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.

Remember when you used to listen to an entire album? Classic Albums Live does.

For the first time in popular music, the greatest albums from the 60s and 70s are recreated live on stage, note for note — cut for cut.

“This has never been done before,” says series producer, Craig Martin. “There’s a real thirst to hear these albums performed start to finish. For many of us this is the music we grew up with—the soundtrack of our lives.”

“All of our focus is put into the music,” says Martin. “We perform the works of the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin the same way an orchestra performs the works of Mozart. We don’t bother with imitation or impersonation. The bands are big — upwards of eleven pieces. We research these albums and go to great lengths to reproduce each and every sound live. We never use tape or computers. We’ll bring in a children’s choir, a sitar player, a string quartet, whatever it takes to get it right.”

Each album calls or a new group of musicians. “That’s the real challenge,” says Martin, “Finding the right musicians for the right album. So far, we’ve been bang on with every performance.” Members of Nelly Furtado, Moist, Jesse Cook, Honeymoon Suite, David Usher and the Headstones have all taken part in the performances.
