"Love, love, love. All you need is love. Love is all you need…” and that’s what was delivered on Saturday, March 23 at Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix. Sure you’ve heard other Beatles tribute bands before, but not of this calibre of stellar A-list artists. “All You Need Is Love” - a musical celebration of The Beatles first appearance on American television 60 years ago - was presented in the round by Danny Zelisko Presents. 


The tour is hosted by iconic frontman Michael Des Barres (Power Station, The Mistakes, Detective and Silverhead) via satellite feed from Hollywood, California. Where else can you hear music being performed by current (and former) band virtuosos from bands such as: Kasim Sulton (vocals, bass and guitar - Meatloaf, Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Blue Oyster Cult, Hall & Oates, Cheap Trick, Cyndi Lauper, Patty Smyth and Joan Jett), Steve Kimock (guitar and bass - Zero, Oteil & Friends, Jazz Is Dead, The Other Ones, RatDog, Rhythm Devils, Phil Lesh & Friends, Kingfish and Heart Of Gold Band), Prairie Prince (drums - The Tubes, Journey, Todd Rundgren, Blue Floyd, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh & Friends, XTC, George Harrison and Chris Isaak), Bobby Lee Rodgers (vocals, guitar, banjo and sitar simulation - Jazz Is Dead, The Codetalkers With Colonel Bruce Hampton, Vassar Clements, Warren Haynes, Widespread Panic and George Porter Jr.), Gil Assayas (vocals and keyboards - Kasim Sulton’s Utopia and Todd Rundgren’s Utopia), Mark Rashotte (guitar - Jake Clemons, Creed and Photograph), Andy Forgie (vocals and theatrics - Creed and Photograph)?
