A TOP London West-End show is coming to a theatre near Ashbourne with hits from one of the world’s best known and much loved pop groups.
The Beatles show Let It Be will be performing at the Regent Theatre, Newcastle from Monday, March 31 until Saturday, April 5.
Let It Be showcases the music of the phenominally successful English rock’n’roll band, in a spectacular theatrical concert charting the band’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in 1960 in Liverpool’s Cavern Club.
The group of four, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, became widely regarded as the greatest and most influential act of the rock era.
Although their roots were originally 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical elements in innovative ways.
In the early 1960s it seemed as if the whole world was experiencing ‘Beatlemania’.
It is the first time that the Grand Theatrical Rights to The Beatles’ back catalogue have been granted by Sony/ATV for a theatre production.
The show is packed with over forty of The Beatles’ greatest hits including I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields, When I’m 64, Get Back and many more.
Let It Be has delighted audiences around the world, including New York, Germany and Monaco, with upcoming dates in Japan and Moscow.
Recent reviews have praised the production, the Daily Telegraph calls it a ‘non-stop parade of hits’ and the Sunday Mirror said: ‘You won’t get better than this West End show!’
The Let It Be UK Tour is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions and Annerin Productions.
Tickets cost from £16.90 to £42.40.
