Kirkland Performance Center and Kirkland Chamber of Commerce present Seattle’s favorite Beatles music experience to celebrate the anniversary of The Beatle’s legendary last performance on the rooftop balcony of the Livengood Alskog building to benefit Northwest Harvest.
BY POPULAR DEMAND – Continuing the annual tradition of blockbuster rooftop performances attended by thousands in Seattle locations, Crème Tangerine, will celebrate the anniversary of The Beatle’s legendary last performance famously known as “the rooftop concert” on the Eastside. This year Crème Tangerine will perform songs from that concert, and more on Saturday, January 30th, 2016 on the rooftop balcony of the Livengood Alskog building (121 3rd Ave, Kirkland, WA) at noon. Crème Tangerine’s performance can be viewed from the Central Way and Lake Washington Blvd (Lake St.) downtown shopping district street level for free. Fans can donate canned food or cash on site to support Northwest Harvest’s mission to distribute food to more than 300 food banks, hot meal programs, and elementary schools across Washington.
Having started in 2009 as a celebration in tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Beatles last concert, Crème Tangerine’s Beatles Rooftop Day, has become a destination each year on that anniversary weekend for northwest Beatles fans to celebrate the Fab Four’s influence on music in the Pacific Northwest. The annual concert event has attracted local and international media attention as well as the endorsement by recording industry legend Ken Mansfield. Mansfield is the former US President of the Beatle’s Apple Records label and was the only American on the roof with the Beatles at that last concert.
“It’s been so cool over the years to see streets packed shoulder to shoulder with people celebrating the music of the Beatles on the last weekend of January – this music truly is a common bond people share together”, states Byron Prather, lead singer of Crème Tangerine. David Alskog lead partner of Livengood Alskog law firm said, “We are honored to be hosting this year’s show in Kirkland! We’re looking forward to showcasing this fun event for free to give people a reason to take a moment to rock out, smile, and have a little fun together on a winter weekend. We hope people will come out and enjoy it all!”
