In the News: TV, Print Coverage of ‘Rooftop’ Beatles Tribute

| January 31, 2014

Thursday’s live tribute to The Beatles on the “rooftop” of Emerson Library drew local media to Webster University to cover the commemoration:

The School of Communications and the Department of Audio Aesthetics and Technology hosted the performance by Abbey Road Warriors, a Beatles tribute band, to coincide with two major milestones: the 45th anniversary of The Beatles’ final live performance as a group – a rooftop concert on the roof of their Saville Row recording studio – and the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ arrival in the U.S.

The 4th-floor Faculty Development Center patio of Emerson Library served as the “rooftop” while Abbey Road Warriors played the same set the Beatles played for their famous final concert: “Get Back,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” “I Got a Feeling,” “One After 909” and “I Dig a Pony.”

Audio and video production students recorded the event, a compilation of which will be posted to GorlokTV.

See more photos from the event in this snapshot post and in this gallery on Webster’s Facebook page.
