Tuesday, February 27, 2018 – 7:30 PM

RAIN:  A Tribute to The Beatles returns for a record-breaking eighth CAA Presents engagement, and its first time at Cincinnati Music Hall!  As “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!” (Associated Press),RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles’ discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats are recognized throughout the United States and abroad as the premiere Chinese acrobatic touring company of today.
