The Fab Faux @ The Chicago Theatre
8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The iconic Rock N’ Roll publication Rolling Stone Magazine calls them, “the greatest Beatles tribute band of all time,” yet that alone doesn’t fully explain the brilliance of The Fab Faux. Their musical virtuosity is unmatched, and their astounding live concerts are an inspired re-discovery of the Beatles’ musical magic that has to be experienced to be believed. With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles’ repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles).
