Wearing the trademark gray and black Beatles suits and half boots, Yesterday began performing "I Saw Her Standing There," the same song the Beatles did on their first performance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Each bore a strong resemblance to John, Paul, George and Ringo, from their British accent to the bopping of their mop top.
The audience participated throughout the first set, clapping, swaying, standing up and dancing, most especially when they closed the set with "Twist and Shout."
As the second set began, the screaming started before the first song was played. Even without the spotlights turned on, it was easy to see that a different kind of Beatles had just taken the stage, complete with circle-rimmed glasses, sideburns, moustaches and bright orange, green, turquoise and pink Sergeant Pepper suits.
Yesterday will be performing on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. in the Schaller Chapel. Tickets are now on sale for $12 at the Storm Lake Chamber Office and Paxton's Jewelry. You may also purchase tickets at the door or by calling the Arts Council at 732-3787.
