"Mick Jagger" and "Keith Richards" of Satisfaction – The International Rolling Stones Show.

The debate between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones has been going on ever since they first crossed paths on the charts 54 years ago. The argument at the time, and one that still persists, was that the Beatles were a pop group and the Stones were a rock band: the boys next door vs. the bad boys of rock.

So who's better?

These two legendary bands will engage in a battle Feb. 23, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, courtesy of tribute bands Abbey Road and Satisfaction – The International Rolling Stones Show.

The Abbey Road band has performed previously at the ECA in the "In My Life – A Musical Theatre Tribute" to the Beatles production.

The Edmonds show is part of a 125-stop tour of the U.S., Australia and Canada, and has been touring since 2011.The show also performs long-term residencies for a number of the Harrah's Casino properties.

The Beatles tribute band Abbey Road has performed at ECA in the past.

The production includes some of the more popular songs from the two rock pioneers and covers the scope of their musical careers, although the set list for "Satisfaction" usually includes Rolling Stones songs up to the 1980s.

During the two-hour show, the bands perform three sets each, trading places in quick set changes and ending the night with an all-out encore involving both bands. The band members have their outfits custom-made, since avid fans know exactly what the Beatles and Stones wore onstage during different time periods in their careers.

"Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Showdown" is 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Ave. N, Edmonds. Tickets are $45-$65 and area available at ec4arts.org, 425-275-9595, boxoffice@ec4arts.org, or at the box office.
