Fab Faux will return to the Michigan Theater to play entire 'Sgt. Pepper' album
The band won over Ann Arbor fans last March, when it performed the Beatles' "Abbey Road" at the Michigan.
Although Beatles tribute bands are a fairly common phenomenon, the Fab Faux set themselves apart in a couple ways: First, they don't dress like the Beatles and make no pretense of "playing" the original musicians. And second, they play a lot of the Beatles' later, much more complex music—so complex that the Beatles themselves didn't attempt to perform it on stage.
While "Abbey Road" no doubt provided a challenge, "Sgt. Pepper" may be even more of one. With its rich orchestrations and non-traditional pop instrumentation, hearing it in concert should be a memorable experience.
Many consider "Sgt. Pepper" to be the Beatles' high point. Rolling Stone has declared "Sgt. Pepper" "the most important rock & roll album ever made." Issued in 1967, the album includes classic songs like "A Little Help From My Friends," "When I'm 64" and "A Day in the Life."
