Abbey Road on the River Announces Partnership, Line-Up and Discounted Single Day Ticket Sale

Louisville, KY (February 5, 2015) – WAVE 3 News and Abbey Road on the River are partnering this year to bring the world’s largest Beatles-inspired music festival back to Louisville for its eleventh year. The five day event will take place over Memorial Day weekend, May 21-25, 2015, at the Belvedere Festival Park and the Muhammad Ali Center. To kick off the partnership, single day tickets can be purchased for just $19.64 (a $35 value) at www.arotr.com by using promo code “wave3news” now through February 28.

WAVE 3 News Vice-President and General Manager Ken Selvaggi says the station is ecstatic about the partnership. “We strive to help build a better community and this internationally recognized music festival brings more acclaim to our region as a very special place to live,” says Selvaggi. “Experiencing memorable moments fuels our community. This wonderful event stirs passion and joy, just like the Beatles have for decades!”

The line-up for the 2015 WAVE 3 News Abbey Road on the River includes rock band The Orchestra, starring former members of ELO and ELO II – Louis Clark, Mik Kaminski, Eric Troyer, and Parthenon Huxley. ELO’s spectacular run of success in the ’70s and ’80s included numerous gold and platinum albums and Top Ten hits such as “Can’t Get It Out of My Head” and “Telephone Line.”

Julia Baird, Lennon’s sister and a director of Cavern City Tours in Liverpool, will attend this year’s festival and speak about her memories of John. Additionally, renowned tribute artist and Beatle historian Tim Piper will perform “Just Imagine,” backed by Working Class Hero. Piper intertwines John Lennon’s songs with the stories behind them to create a unique and electrifying multimedia concert experience in this critically acclaimed tribute.
