Former Beatle Pete Best will perform in Columbus, Ohio, on July 28 -

Tuesday, June 11, 2024

A former member of the Beatles is bringing his drum kit to the Valley Dale Ballroom next month.

No, it's not Ringo Starr — original Beatles drummer Pete Best is coming to town.

Flashback: Best played alongside Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison for two years, until the band replaced him with Starr in 1962.

The band went on to enjoy Beatlemania, while Best later left the music industry for two decades. He now tours with a band playing Beatles hits and original songs.

The intrigue: The Cyrkle, a classic rock band that toured with the Beatles in 1966, will be the opening act.

Want to go? The July 28 show at 1590 Sunbury Road will feature a pre-concert lecture at 2:30pm ($59-79) with Best and his brother, Roger, followed by a 4pm meet and greet ($65).

The concert starts at 6pm ($59-99).
