An accurate re-creation of the Beatles' album Abbey Road will be presented instrumentally Friday by a traveling ensemble. The performance, part of the Classic Albums Live series, promises to deliver a concert using ten musicians to play music cut for cut on the album by the globally popular revered foursome. Forgoing costumes and impersonations, Classic Albums Live hopes to take you back to the 1970s as if you were listening to the Beatles in their heyday with a performance that acts much like a recital without all the cheesy foreplay. With 100-plus shows across the nation, Classic Albums Live has seen massive success, especially in Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, and New York, by taking classic rock albums that people love and re-creating them live onstage. They are also planning a spring performance of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album without all the gimmicky impersonations as well. Favorite songs from the landmark Beatles album that will be played Friday are "Here Comes the Sun," the timeless "Oh! Darling," the everlasting "Come Together," and many more. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Parker Playhouse, located on 707 NE Eighth St. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $19 to $49. If you prefer something a little more exclusive, you can purchase a $69 VIP ticket, which allows you to meet and greet the band after the show. Visit browardcenter.org, or call 954-660-6307.
