The popular Beatles tribute band The WannaBeatles is joining forces with the Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tenn., for a Feb. 9 (Wednesday) concert celebrating the 47th anniversary of The Beatles' appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show".

The "February 9th Ed Sullivan-Beatles Anniversary Concert" will occur from 7-8:30 p.m. The Beatles made history when they were introduced to 73 million viewers on "The Ed Sullivan Show" on that landmark day in 1964. The WannaBeatles will help relive the milestone by becoming the first band to perform live to original video clips of the Beatles' landmark TV appearance.

The WannaBeatles

A solo musical artist can vie for the opportunity to "Twist and Shout" with The WannaBeatles and win a free three-hour recording session by entering the "Fifth Beatle Competition". The winner of a radio giveaway contest will be transported to Dickson in an English town car called the "Ed Sulli-Van". Sheryl Gardner's famous "Beatles" bug will be on display during the event.

"It's going to be a really big 'shew'", said two-time Grammy winner and WannaBeatles band leader Dennis Scott, mimicking Sullivan. "Every Beatles fan who was age 4 or older can remember exactly where he or she was when the band appeared on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'. What a wonderful way to celebrate that life-changing musical moment."

The event is sponsored by 105.9-FM The Rock, CPA Consulting Group, Matchless Transportation, The Geek in the Jeep, and Whiting Publicity & Promotions. Tickets to the show are $10 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and under. Group discount rates are available. A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will support the Renaissance Center's efforts to provide much- needed exposure for artists across Middle Tennessee.

The Renaissance Center is located at 855 Highway 46 S. in Dickson. To learn more about the event and/or buy tickets, call (615) 740-5572 or visit To learn more about how to enter the "Fifth Beatle Competition", call (615) 309-8688.
