Here Comes Paul The Beatle To Kimball


April 25, 2019

In a brillant one-man Beatlemania show, Bob Halligan Jr. portrays Paul McCartney through his career as a Beatle and as a solo artist in a singer-songwriter, theatrical format involving music, dialogue and onstage wardrobe changes.

The Kimball Concert Association brings this delightful show, titled "PaulTheBeatle" in a single word without spaces, to Kimball on Wednesday, May 1, in the Harry E. McNees Auditorium at 7 p.m.

Paul has a conversation with the audience--and himself--that inevitably leads to the songs we so deeply love. Through the laughter and the tears, Paul traces the band's musical journey and his contributions to it, with no back-up musicians, only Paul on keyboard, guitar and bass.

This show is not just any Beatle Tribute show. Bob Halligan, Jr. takes it to a different and compelling level that shines a light on the master-mind of Beatle Paul McCartney. The dialogue enhances the performance and Bob Halligan's voice is magic.

Bob Halligan, Jr. has written over 1,100 songs. He has sung on recordings with Billy Joel and numerous other artists, and he is an Adjunct Professor at Syracuse University where he teaches songwriting, film scoring, music business and a Beatles class. Recently he was the only American invited to sing at a Papal gathering of 100,000 people in Italy and he met Pope Francis.

A membership will also allow the ticket holder to attend concerts in Cheyenne, WY, Fort Morgan, CO, Holyoke, CO and Loveland, CO. Memberships may be purchased at the door prior to the concert or by contacting Karen Morrison at 308-235-3239 or Susie Abramson at 308-235-3295.
