E Street Band members Garry Tallent, Steven Van Zandt and Max Weinberg, in Toronto after performing with Bruce Springsteen at the Rogers Centre, took in the Saturday, August 25 evening performance of the smash hit musical drama, BACKBEAT, at the Royal Alexandra Theatre.
The three musicians, considered at the top of their fields, were thrilled with the show that traces the roots of the Beatles. They found the show’s authenticity especially powerful and they marvelled at the musicianship of the cast members, who not only act in this superb drama but also perform their own instruments and sing many of the classic rock ‘n’ roll standards that the Beatles cut their teeth on and the band’s early hits. After the performance Garry Tallent, Steven Van Zandt and Max Weinberg went backstage to congratulate the cast.
