Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil just celebrated its 5th Anniversay at the Mirage Hotel and Casino Las Vegas. Check out photos from the event below!

This specially added 5th Anniversary show on Wednesday, June 8 included 19 original cast members from the 70 person cast, and ended with a surprise walk-on appearance from Sir Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Olivia Harrison, Sir George and GiLes Martin, Dominic Champagne, Gilles St-Croix and Daniel Lamarre during the finale of "All You Need is Love."

Following the show, there was a special moment backstage with Paul, Yoko, Sean, Olivia, Dhani, Sir George, Giles and the cast.

The exclusive after-party at The Mirage pool included Paul McCartney's DJ Chris Holmes accompanied by Danger Mouse and Elijah Wood, a performance of "Eleanor Rigby" by GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell and pianist Frankie Moreno, and a surprise performance from the cast of Zumanity, The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil.

LOVE celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas. The project was born out of a personal friendship and mutual admiration between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté
