Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles 

8 p.m. Wednesday, February 4, and Thursday, February 5. The Fox Theatre, 527 North Grand Boulevard.

Featuring John Lennon's famously backward vocals, "Rain" was one of the most visionary songs in the Beatles' catalog. It's fitting, then, that Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles is arguably the most ambitious of musical memorials to the pivotal Brits. Although most tributes would be satisfied simply re-creating the Fab Four's most notorious live performances, Rain specializes in re-creating late-era studio gems from Abbey Road and the White Album that the Beatles itself were unable to play live. Nevertheless, the group has the mop-tops, jangly Rickenbacker guitars and sparkling harmonies that defined the Liverpool lads in their early days — and concerts include mid-set wardrobe changes into Sgt. Pepper's garb and "Hey Jude" hippie wigs.
