The Beatles: Let It Be
Craig Martin describes this performance as the sound of four young men becoming independent musicians. Close your eyes and you’d think the Beatles were right in front of you! The audience will hear string and horn sections in songs such as ‘A Long And Winding Road’.

Fleetwood Mac: Rumours
According to Craig Martin, the performance of this album is one of the toughest shows for Classic Albums Live. The songs are lush and filled with beautiful textures and have a whimsical nature. Due to the difficulty and richness of this album, Classic Albums Live has five singers for this show to perfect every sound.
This year we are thrilled to announce a pre-show event with Classic Albums Live called Sound Sessions.
This pre-show chat starts at 7PM prior to each performance and is open to all ticket-holders.
“The pre-show chat allows us to get intimate and interactive with the community and build an awesome line of communication and conversation” says Craig Martin. “We talk about the music, any surprises we found while learning the songs and the process of learning these tracks note for note – cut for cut.” Martin describes the pre-show chat as a way to ‘pull back the curtain’ to allow the audience to have a look behind the scenes of what it takes to get to performance day.
Make sure you get your tickets to the awesome Classic Albums Live performances and come early to participate in the amazing new pre-show chat.
