Broadway Beatles Tribute Bands Go To Battle

(Radio.com) Let It Be is facing off against Rain, but not in a battle of the best Beatles songs. Instead this is a stand off that will be taking place in court between two tribute bands who have each brought their mop tops to Broadway.

The Beatles tribute show, Rain, which was on Broadway for nine months from 2010 to 2011, is suing Let It Be, which begins previews of its own tribute show next week.

According to The New York Times, Rain is claiming that Let It Be has used some of the same musical arrangements, between-song banter and even wigs.

According to court papers, all but 3 of the 31 songs featured in Rain are also in Let It Be and "the artwork used as background during the performance of many of those songs are similar or identical." more on this story
