All You Need Is Love Live @ The Empire Theatre (Photoset & Review)

Photos & Review by Stuart Roberts of The Photo Roadies 

The Empire Theatre in Belleville played host on Saturday to a star packed Beatles salute with “All YouNeed Is Love”. This sold out performance featured Kasim Sulton (Utopia, Meat Loaf, The New Cars) singing “Yesterday”, Bobby Lee Rodgers (The Codetalkers, Jazz is Dead) with a smooth delivery of “Blackbird” and Canada’s Andy Forgie (Photograph/Creed) performing lead vocal duties on “Help”, “Helter Skelter”, and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. This musical cast was joined on stage by Mark Rashotte (Photograph, Jake Clemons Band), Steve Kimock (Bob Weir’s Kingfish, Phil Lesh and Friends), Prairie Prince (The Tubes, Chris Isaak, Jefferson Starship) and Gil Assayas (Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Joey Molland’s Badfinger). Michael Des Barre (actor/singer–Power Station) was recruited to add introductions and background details on a video feed from Los Angeles. Belleville was the only Canadian stop on this current tour for “All You Need Is Love” as the band heads to the USA for thirteen upcoming shows with performances in Pittsburgh, Boston, Cleveland, and Indianapolis on the current schedule.
