Come Together: Columbus musicians play entire Beatles catalog in marathon concert
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – If you’re a die-hard Beatles fan, Columbus is home to a unique way to celebrate the Fab Four this Saturday.
The Beatles Marathon kicks off at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday at the Athenaeum Theater in the city center.
Local musician Joe Peppercorn is the frontman of the group Sgt. Pepper Marathon. They’ll play every Beatles song ever recorded and released – non-stop. That’s 230 songs over 14 hours.
Peppercorn says the annual tribute is a way for people of all ages to have fun and let off steam.
“No one else does. Columbus, Ohio, is the only place where you can see this spectacle, ”said Peppercorn. “I scoured the internet trying to find someone who did this, and this is the only show of its kind where you can hear every song recreated live by people who care about music as much as you do.”
Tickets at the show are still available. Peppercorn says the concert is family friendly and entry for children is free.
