Classic songs from two legendary music groups will be featured on May 14 when the Illinois Central College Guest Artists Series presents The Lost Concert: The Music of the Monkees and Beatles.
Although they were popular during the same time period, the Monkees and the Beatles never performed a concert together. This event rewrites musical history by imagining what such a concert would be like. The event features tribute bands Pleasant Valley Sunday and Paperback Writer and begins at 7:30 pm in the ICC Performing Arts Center, located on the East Peoria Campus.
The Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit of the University of Illinois Extension 4-H program will be the highlighted community partner for the event. The community partner program, a part of the ICC Guest Artists Series, highlights a non-profit or community organization which has ties to the Guest Artists Series performance.
Patrons at the event who donate to support 4-H will be entered in a drawing for two free tickets to a future ICC Guest Artists Series event.
In addition, the 2016-2017 Guest Artists Series lineup of performances will also be revealed at the May 14 event.
As it does for all ICC Guest Artists Series events, CityLink provides Park and Ride service from Peoria for the performance. Buses leave Evergreen Square at 7 pm, to transport passengers directly to the ICC Performing Arts Center. Buses return to Evergreen Square immediately after the show. The cost is $1 each way with senior citizens 65 years of age or older riding free.
Tickets cost $20 for the general public and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at ArtsAtICC.com or by calling the box office at (309) 694-5136.
