The Rolling Stones were considered to be the original punksters; The Beatles came upon the scene as mods more than rockers.

Were the Stones yelling for “Help” to fight the songwriting prowess of Lennon and McCartney? Were The Beatles crying “Gimme Shelter” from the relentless sonic barrage of the Jagger and Richards classics?

Who is the greatest band in rock history? Was it The Beatles or the Rolling Stones?

For decades, the battle has raged on within musical circles. Throughout history of each band fans have accused the rival group of being a copy cat. Now, the infamous rock -and-roll rivalry takes place right before your eyes on a stage near you: “Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Shoot Out” brings talented musicians together for an unforgettable night of entertainment in this multimedia show.

“Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Shoot Out” is the ultimate battle of the ultimate bands. The show pits the mop tops against the bad boys: London against Liverpool. Only one band emerges victorious. No matter who wins, however, the audience will be to be razzle-dazzled by the iconic music, costumes and spot-on performances.

The talented members of Abbey Road and Jumping Jack Flash have taken great care to recreate the experience of those legendary bands to please casual music fans as well as genre purists. They somehow manage to capture the imagination and the raw energy of The Beatles and the Rolling Stones in their prime and beyond.

Overall this rich showcase returns fans to the musical genius of these international superstars.
