CLEARWATER - Due to overwhelming demand Classic Albums Live returns to Clearwater performing Creedence Clearwater Revival: Chronicle on Sunday, July 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre.
Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles including I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Lodi, Susie Q, Who'll Stop the Rain, Travelin’ Band, Fortunate Son, Down On The Corner, Bad Moon Rising and, of course, Proud Mary.
The eight time platinum album Chronicle is ranked at number 59 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of all time. It has sold more than six million copies in the U.S. since 1991.
Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it as you remember it from the original recording. The attention to detail is staggering - every sound from the album is re-created live on stage by world-class musicians assembled for each album presentation.
Reserved tickets priced at $50, $45 and $35 will be available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater, by calling 727-791-7400 and online at www.AtTheCap.com.
Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and re-creates them live, on stage - note for note, cut for cut, bringing together some of the country’s finest musicians to re-create live on stage the exact sounds of the greatest albums of the 60s and 70s. Musicians are chosen according to their sound and their fit into a particular niche, be it Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Van Halen or The Stones. The album might require a sitar player, a children’s choir, a string quartet or someone to ring the alarm clock. Whatever it takes, the musicians treat these revered albums like a score, the way a symphony orchestra treats Mozart.
