RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles
The British Invasion will land at Jetties Beach on Nantucket this summer when RAIN: A Tribute to The Beatles joins the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra as the special musical guest for the 22nd annual Boston Pops on Nantucket concert to benefit Nantucket Cottage Hospital.
RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles’ discography including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles recorded in studio but never performed for an audience. Now together longer than the legendary foursome, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture, and nuance of The Beatles, delivering a note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting.
For more than 20 years, the Boston Pops on Nantucket has been the largest and most popular summer event on the island, attracting thousands to Jetties Beach for a night of spectacular entertainment all to raise critical funds for Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Paired with RAIN, conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra will deliver another memorable edition of the concert, which is set for Aug. 11th, 2018.
RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles follows previous special musical guests for the Boston Pops on Nantucket concert including last year’s act, The Beach Boys, as well as former special guests Kenny Loggins, Matthew Morrison, Michael Cavanaugh, Carly Simon, Linda Eder, Joel Grey, and the late Natalie Cole. Nantucket Island Resorts / Jill and Stephen Karp return once again as presenting sponsors of the Boston Pops on Nantucket concert. Major sponsors returning in 2018 include Fidelity Investments.
