LIVE AND LET DIE: Sir Paul would be proud

Tony Kishman and company offer a stunning musical tribute to Paul McCartney

A performer who helped make Beatlemania a Broadway smash is bringing his musical tribute to Paul McCartney to Victoria.

Tony Kishman, who has been complimented on his ability to play, sound and look like the member of the Fab Four by none other than McCartney himself and longtime Beatles producer Sir George Martin, brings the Live and Let Die show to the Royal Theatre on Jan. 11.

The critically-acclaimed show is a dynamic multimedia production that transports audiences back to the late heyday of The Beatles with songs like “Hey Jude,” “Let it Be,” “Yesterday” and “Penny Lane.” The show also features material from McCartney’s work with Wings and in his more recent solo career, with songs like “Maybe I’m Amazed,” Silly Love Songs,” Live and Let Die” and more.

Kishman starred for six years in both the national and international tours of Beatlemania and also performs in the International Symphonic Beatles production, Classical Mystery Tour. His performing connection to the legendary band has taken him around the world over the past decade, as he brings the music and magic of the Beatles and Paul McCartney to a new generation.

Tickets for this unique production start at $58 and are available online at rmts.bc.ca, by phone at 250-386-6121 or in person at the theatre box office. You can find more information at liveandletdieshow.com.
