Stroll Down Penny Lane
About Stroll Down Penny Lane
A live performance with beautiful films accompanying the music of the most iconic songwriter, Paul McCartney, "Stroll Down Penny Lane" features songs spanning McCartney’s career – from early influences, to the Beatles, through the Wings period, and beyond. You’ll also hear songs that have never been performed in concert – anywhere, by anyone!
Live, in concert; experience McCartney’s music and influences, from early rock and roll – like Little Richard – until now, spanning sixty years of music. Explore the ballads – a form McCartney adopted when he was a teenager. He became its acknowledged master – no one else in the world can compare.
At the heart of the show is an amazing band paying tribute to some of the most amazing and beloved music of the past 60 years. The musical experience is enhanced with stories, evocative images, a musical education of sorts, and animation.
Four years in the making, "Stroll Down Penny Lane" is the fruit of that obsession. Equipped only with a vision, a bunch of guitars, and a voice uncannily like McCartney’s, Prof. Stompensplatt set out to create a show to share. He assembled an outstanding band of musicians, an animator, and a video artist to create a unique concert experience. The show illuminates the creative process, musical tricks of the trade, the social climate of the times and McCartney himself. Running through it all is the sheer enjoyment of the music.
Recommended for ages 16 and up. Ages 8-16 must be accompanied by an adult.
