Together longer than The Beatles themselves, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary group, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. Includes the early hits to later classics that The Beatles never got the chance to play live - including the most complex and challenging songs.
