The Astor Theatre to Remain Closed until September 1, 2020



Covid-19 Update 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 4, 2020

LIVERPOOL, NS — The historic Astor Theatre in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, will remain closed for the spring and summer, the theatre’s board of directors announced today in response to ongoing precautions around the COVID-19 pandemic.

All events planned for the theatre up to Sept. 1 have been either cancelled or re-scheduled. The annual summer theatre camp has also been cancelled for this year. Any tickets for live events that patrons have purchased will be valid for the re-scheduled date.

The board made these difficult decisions to respect the safety of the Astor’s staff, performers and patrons.

Kristopher Snarby, chairman of the Astor Theatre Society, thanked all of the theatre’s staff for their commitment and dedication.

“We also want to thank our community for their ongoing support and we want to assure them that this is only a temporary closure,” Snarby said. “We look forward to reopening when we can.”

The Astor Theatre is the artistic hub of Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Built in 1902 as part of Liverpool’s historic town hall, it was originally known as the Liverpool Opera House. The Astor has hosted a variety of local, national and international events, from the popular Queens County Music Festival and Liverpool International Theatre Festival to concerts featuring Rufus Wainwright and Measha Brueggergosman.

RESCHEDULED – The McCartney Years @ Astor Theatre
Apr 16 @ 7:30 pm

RESCHEDULED

Show April 16, 2021

Doors 7pm Show 7:30pm

There are many Beatles tributes. But there’s only one show that celebrates the genius of Paul McCartney at the height of his career in the mid-1970s. And this is it!

Praised by Beatles promoter Sid Bernstein – the man who brought the original Beatles to North America – as the best on the scene today’, The McCartney Years is a note-for-note faithful recreation of a mid-1970s Paul McCartney concert.

Led by perfectionist Yuri Pool as Sir Paul, the band has a commitment to 100% live and accurate reproductions of McCartney’s concert experience. The show is period-true, technically stunning and sonically explosive. Every note is live and played true to its original arrangement. It has set the standard for all who might follow in this significant body of work. And… it’s a blast to watch and listen to!

Whether he’s playing a real McCartney-style Höfner Bass or sporting the same wardrobe from the ‘Wings over America’ mid-70s tour, Yuri is true to Sir Paul in his musicianship, vocal stylings and presentation. And the band doesn’t miss a beat delivering a texture that will transport you back to the first time you heard these great songs on vinyl. TMY players include David Usselman (guitars and bass); Braden DeCooman (guitars); Hubert Orlowski (keyboards and synth); Laura Gagnon (percussion and keyboards; Dean McKey (drums) and of course Yuri on bass, vocals, piano and guitar.

Experience three decades of ‘The Beatles’ and ‘Wings’ live – with the world’s premier McCartney concert experience. Rewind into the 60s and 70s to dance, sing and relive your passion for McCartney with a band that has opened for Mariah Carey, performed sold-out shows across Canada, The United States and Europe and been featured on CNN.
