Say the words ‘Let it Be’ to most adults and immediately they’ll think of the Beatles, 46 years after the song was released.  It’s extraordinary how much the music of The Beatles still permeates our lives and new fans are discovering their music every day.  They were a phenomenal global success with their music rooted in skiffle, beat and rock and roll, They formed in 1960, playing in Hamburg and then the Cavern Club in Liverpool. Manager Brian Epstein moulded them into a professional act, and producer George Martin guided and developed their recordings, greatly expanding their popularity in the United Kingdom after their first hit, "Love Me Do", in late 1962. They acquired the nickname "the Fab Four" as Beatlemania grew in Britain the next year, and by early 1964 became international stars, leading the "British Invasion" of the United States pop market. 

The Beatles were George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. They are the best-selling band in history, with estimated sales of over one billion units. The group received 7 Grammy awards, 15 Ivor Novello Awards and an Oscar. They have more multi-platinum albums, more number one singles and more number one albums than any other group. They are the only act to have simultaneously held the top five positions on the US Billboard chart. They are the only group to appear five times in the top 100 best-selling singles in the UK – no other group appears more than twice. Their song Yesterday is the most covered song in history. Their song I Want To Hold Your Hand is the fastest selling single of all time. The Beatles 1 is the fastest selling CD of all time. The group officially split in December 1970.

The national UK tour is visiting 26 theatres across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales entertaining theatregoers with a show spanning the iconic eras of the band’s illustrious career.

Let It Be audiences can look forward to a show lasting more than two hours bursting with timeless hits, show-stopping sets, dazzling costumes and a brilliant performance which fans will never forget. The show also continues to attract theatregoers and fans of live music, alongside the most dedicated Beatles’ enthusiasts. The Beatles have never been so popular with a real resurgence in the band’s popularity and new fans discovering their music. 

The cast of talented musicians have already toured the show to some of the biggest stages in the world including Broadway.  With the help of some excellent wigs, the lads really look like the Fab Four and do a fantastic job at recreating their sound and humour.
