Great Life RE Weekend To Do List, July 6-8
The fireworks are over (for the most part), but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. Follow our weekly to do list to find some of the best events that happen each weekend. We strive to bring you things in and around Knoxville that you may not even know about!
When: Saturday, July 7th, 7:30pm-9:30pm
Where: Clayton Center for the Arts / 502 E Lamar Alexander Pkwy. Maryville
Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience is the nation’s most innovative and unique show utilizing the works of the Beatles. This amazing group, anchored by brothers Billy, Ryan and Matthew McGuigan, does away the worn out “tribute” format of bad wigs and fake accents. Instead, they perform as themselves and leave the song choices completely in the hands of the audience. This is done through request cards that audience members fill out prior to the show. On those cards, the audience member only needs to fill out three things: their name, their favorite Beatles song and the reason why they chose that song. The cards are collected and two minutes before the show begins, a set list is created based upon the songs chosen by that particular audience. As an added treat, the reasons that the audience members chose those songs make up the narrative of the evening.
