This year marks another notable 50th anniversary - in the same year that Lafayette became a city, a Liverpudlian band of some fame released The White Album. And Lafayette's Town Hall Theatre will be celebrating that release in authentic Beatles-style on Nov. 2 and 3 with concerts put on by the Sun Kings, the much-loved Bay Area Beatles tribute band.

Town Hall Theatre board Vice President Tom Stack is excited. The Sun Kings opened the Music and Comedy Series for which Stack is responsible, in its very first show back in 2010. "This will be one of our greatest shows," says Stack, his enthusiasm evident.

Stack explains that the first show on Friday, Nov. 2 will be an evening with the Sun Kings playing the very best of the Beatles. "Lots of hits, including some songs from The White Album," he says. At the time of writing some tickets were still available.

However it is the sold out show on Saturday, Nov. 3 that Stack is most excited about. He explains that the Sun Kings will be playing the entire White Album through in order for 90 minutes.

The event will be much more than just a regular concert - there is a White Album-themed costume contest for starters.
