Crème Tangerine will celebrate the anniversary of The Beatles’ last show through a performance on Jan. 27 on the rooftop balcony of the Livengood Alskog building starting at noon.
All ages are welcome. The performance can be viewed from downtown Kirkland’s Central Way and Lake Street Shopping District at the street level for free.
The performance will benefit Hopelink, a social services nonprofit agency that promotes self-sufficiency to all members of the community and helps people make lasting changes in their lives. Fans can donate to support Hopelink’s mission.
The annual concert event has attracted local and international media attention as well as the endorsement by recording industry legend Ken Mansfield. Mansfield was previously the U.S. president of the Beatles’ Apple Records label and was the only American on the roof with the group during the impromptu performance.
The tribute started in 2009 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Beatles’ last concert. In the years since, the yearly tradition has become a way for northwest Beatles fans to celebrate the Fab Four’s influence on music throughout the world.
“It’s been so cool over the years to see streets packed shoulder to shoulder with people celebrating the music of the Beatles on the last weekend of January,” Crème Tangerine’s guitarist Tim Mushen said in a press release. “This music truly is a common bond people share together.”
“We are honored to be hosting this show once again in Kirkland,” David Alskog, lead partner of the Livengood Alskog law firm, said in a press release. “We’re looking forward to showcasing this fun event for free to give people a reason to take a moment to rock out, smile, and have a little fun together on a winter weekend. We hope people will come out to the Downtown Kirkland area and enjoy it all.”
Crème Tangerine is a five piece band from Seattle that performs the music of the Beatles for thousands each year. Their high energy performances have appealed to those already familiar with and new to the music of The Beatles.
