The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other artist. The Beatles have had more No. 1 albums (15) on the United Kingdom charts and held down the top spot longer (174 weeks) than any other musical act. They continue to influence music and musicians more than 40 years after their stunning breakup in late 1969.  

Celebrating the music, the energy and the influence of the Beatles is the tribute band “The Fab Four,” a multimedia stage production that has been amazing audiences all over the world including Japan, Australia, Germany, Mexico and Canada.  

“The Fab Four” will appear at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 27 at the Village of Lisle-Benedictine University Sports Complex. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 (lawn), $30 (stands) and $60 (main floor). Reserved parking is included with the price of main floor seats.
