LET IT BE Kicks Off Tour Around UK, Scotland and Ireland Today
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.
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.
