Opera House: 2nd Annual Telluride Tribute Fest

March 19-21, 2015, 8:30 p.m. nightly. With bands paying tribute to Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, Journey & the Beatles

The Sheridan Arts Foundation and Cornerhouse Grille are proud to present the second annual Telluride Tribute Fest, featuring three nights of live music at the Sheridan Opera House paying tribute to some of rock music’s biggest bands.

Individual tickets and three-day general admission and VIP passes are available for sale through SheridanOperaHouse.com. Three day general admission passes are $80; VIP passes (which includes balcony access, beer from Telluride Brewing Co. and a T-shirt) are $135.

The Tribute Fest kicks off  Thursday, March 19 with Who’s Bad? The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band. Tickets are $30 general admission on the floor and $40 reserved in the balcony.


Who’s Bad’s live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music’s one true King. Their power-packed performance of Michael Jackson’s expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see. As the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing, Who’s Bad has awed even the skeptics, selling out nearly 50 venues in the United Kingdom including London’s O2 in December of 2010, the very place where the King of Pop was slated to end his career with a 50-show “This Is It” concert series.

Who’s Bad has earned its name by paying studious attention to Michael Jackson’s every original groove and gravity-defying dance move, boasting over 100 years of professional experience and a team of dancers with resumes that include Broadway productions such as “Phantom of the Opera.”

Friday night will feature two shows. Rumours: The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show will take the stage at 8 p.m.

Rumours is based in Los Angeles. The group formed in the summer of 2012 to recreate the legendary band Fleetwood Mac in its youthful heyday, 1975-1979.


The band has meticulously put together a show that spares no detail. From period accurate equipment and costumes to spot on characterizations and musical performances, Rumours takes you back to a time when music was still an unbridled cultural experience and bands weren’t afraid to put on a show. Tickets are $30 general admission on the floor and $40 reserved balcony.

New this year is a LATE NIGHT show with Eclipse: The Music of Journey, on Friday, March 20 at 11 p.m. Tickets are $15 general admission.

Eclipse captures and recreates the spirit, sound and innovation that is the live Journey experience. From the angelic vocal styles of Steve Perry to the eclectic, yet delicate guitar works of Neal Schon, the keyboard wizardries of Greg Rolie and Jonathan Cain combined with the intricate bass and percussion work of Ross Valory and Steve Smith. Eclipse captures the total package that is Journey.

With a focus on the albums from 1978 through 1996, Eclipse’s audiences can dance and sing along to all of Journey’s power ballads and chart topping hits. The music of Journey has an enduring appeal that appeals to fans of all ages. Guests at this concert should expect a lot of high-energy fun and maybe even a few surprises!


The festival closes out on Saturday, March 21 with Yesterday: The Beatles Tribute Band. The show begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are $30 general admission on the floor and $40 reserved balcony.

Performing all eras of Beatles music in their original key, wearing drainpipe trousers and playing authentic instruments, Yesterday has performed on five continents. Beginning with the British Invasion in 1964, the mop tops from Liverpool began the first wave of Beatlemania. The Beatles forever changed the face of pop music with such songs as “Hard Day’s Night”, “Help”, “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, and “Revolution.” Yesterday recreates note for note the music of the Fab Four.

Based in Las Vegas, Yesterday Beatles tribute show bands have performed their long-running show in among others, Atlantic City at the Tropicana Casino Resort for three years, at the Horizon Casino Hotel in Lake Tahoe for eight months, five months in the Tiffany Theater at the Tropicana in Las Vegas, countless Beatles tribute shows in New York, and hundreds of venues across the U.S.
