LET IT BE Announces National Tour From 2014
Following its hugely successful run in London's West End, the hit Beatles show LET IT BE will tour the UK and Ireland from 28 February 2014. Tickets go on sale today at www.LetItBeonTour.com.
The tour is announced just a few days after LET IT BE celebrated its first birthday in the West End with a celebrity gala performance at its London home, the Savoy Theatre. By popular demand, the London run has also been extended and is now booking until 8th February 2014.
Echoing The Beatles' own early UK tours, LET IT BE will play the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland, visiting Manchester, Torquay, Birmingham, Sunderland, Stoke, Liverpool, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Bristol, Southampton, Cardiff, Northampton, Edinburgh, Belfast, Dublin, Sheffield and Southend.
At the Liverpool Empire, the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton and the Princess Theatre in Torquay, LET IT BE will play on the very same stages that The Beatles played on their 1963 UK tour. In fact, The Beatles played the Liverpool Empire five times in all, in 1963 (three times), 1964 and 1965.
The tour will begin on Friday 28th February 2014 at the Palace Theatre, Manchester, with an official opening night on Monday 3rd March at the same venue.
Several of the original London cast will tour with the show, with some new faces joining. The full company will be announced shortly.
LET IT BE showcases the music of the world's most successful rock'n'roll band, in a spectacular theatrical concert charting the band's meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool's Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces.
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.
