The Beatles’ historic concert on the Seattle Center campus in 1964 will be performed by Kirkland band Crème Tangerine, at the Seattle Center’s Mural Amphitheater at 7 p.m. tonight. The performance is exactly 50 years to the date, time and place of the Beatle’s Seattle appearance. The event is all ages and free to the public.

Crème Tangerine will perform the entire setlist from that concert in order, along with many other Fab Four favorites to mark this anniversary and celebrate the influence the Beatles have had on music in the Northwest for 50 years.
“It will be so exciting to see the Seattle Center Mural Amphitheater grounds packed shoulder to shoulder with people celebrating the music of the Beatles exactly 50 years to the minute and location of when and where the Beatles visited our city – this music truly is a common bond people share together”, said Byron Prather, lead singer of Crème Tangerine. “We look forward to this show being a moment this summer to celebrate this timeless music! We’re going to perform this fun event for free in Seattle to give people a reason to take a moment to rock out, smile, and have a lot of fun celebrating the Beatles. We hope people will come out and enjoy it all!”
The performance will highlight the hunger relief work of Northwest Harvest. Northwest Harvest will be on hand to receive canned food and donations in their work to battle hunger.
