"Come Together" with Upcoming “Beatles vs. Stones — A Musical Showdown" Performance


“Let it Be” took on a new meaning for Abbey Road drummer Axel Clarke on March 13.

He and his fellow bandmates in the Beatles tribute group were in Salt Lake City, halfway through a six-week tour with Rollings Stones tribute band Satisfaction – The International Rolling Stones Show. By the time they’d finished their sound check, left for dinner and came back, their show was canceled due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.

Unsurprisingly, the musicians were forced to take several months off from performing, but Clarke said the first glimmer of hope was in June. That’s when the two bands, which make up the show “Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Showdown,” were confirmed for their fall tour, and the third stop was determined to be in Cheyenne.

Clarke said it was nice getting a break from the road, and he was definitely OK with putting away the Ringo Starr costume for a bit. He spent much of that downtime playing the kind of music he loves and misses from the pre-Abbey Road days.

“Before I got into the band, I was jumping between 10-15 gigs all of the time, all styles and genres, so it’s been nice to get back in touch with that,” he said. “I haven’t gotten to do that for myself in a long time. I don’t want to pick up drumsticks for a week or so when I get off the road, but it’s fun to get back to it for the love of it.”

But, like everyone, he eventually caught cabin fever and said the anticipation of the return of live performances continued to build.

“I think it’ll be a special experience for us,” Clarke said of this fall tour. “The funny thing about that last show … (which was in Grand Junction, Colorado, on March 14) is I think half the audience showed up, and they had this really unique vibe I couldn’t put my finger on. This sense of this was a last hurrah before whatever is going to happen happens. … (Now) something we used to enjoy is coming back, and I think it’ll be a real celebration for us.”

The show will be staged Sept. 12 at The Lincoln, nearly a month after the venue’s grand opening. In addition to the two tribute bands, the performance will feature South High sophomores Savannah Judkins, Angelina Lohmann and Becca Trujillo and Central High senior Ray Kline. These members of their respective high school orchestras, as well as the Cheyenne Youth Symphony, will join the professionals onstage for the songs “Eleanor Rigby,” “A Day in the Life,” “Hello Goodbye,” “Hey Jude,” “Gimme Shelter” and “Ruby Tuesday. …
