BEACON Senior News

Love dancing? Love the Rolling Stones?

Feb 01, 2019 11:29PM ● By Cloie Sandlin

Last month’s Beatles vs. Rolling Stones show was a hit. This sold-out show attracted fans of both legendary bands who were unafraid to let loose, dancing and singing along to some of their all-time favorite songs.

While the majority of feedback we’ve received from readers leans pro-Beatles, the electric showmanship of “Mick Jagger” and the rest of the Rolling Stones tribute band swayed some die-hard Beatles fans to reconsider. Personally, I thought the Rolling Stones look-alikes won hands down even though I like more of the Beatles’ music.

If a tribute band can emit such energy, imagine what it’d be like to see the real Stones live. If this is your dream then you’re in luck! The Rolling Stones are coming to Denver on May 26 and the BEACON is giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader.

Entering is easy—just come to BeaconFest Boomer & Senior Fair at Two Rivers Convention Center on Tuesday, April 16. This annual expo and reader appreciation party is a whole lot of fun (and FREE!)

All you need is love

The Beatles might have said it best, but many of this month’s stories affirm the power of love and why it makes life worth living.

Speaking of love, thanks to all who voted for the BEACON Best, an elite group of your most loved locales, activities and businesses. And, thank you to these organizations for providing quality products and services to boomers and seniors that make their lives easier and more enjoyable. Check out the 2019 BEACON Best.
