Following its highly successful run in London’s West End, the hit Beatles show LET IT BE will tour the UK and Ireland from 28th February 2014. The touring company, which includes members of the London cast, has been confirmed as Emanuele Angeletti, John Brosnan, Ben Cullingworth, James Fox, Michael Gagliano, Reuven Gershon, Stephen Hill and Luke Roberts. They will be joined on keyboard by Michael Bramwell, Steve Geere and Mike Lindup.
The West End run of LET IT BE ended on 8th February 2014 and will now commence a tour of the UK and Ireland, starting at the Palace Theatre, Manchester, on 28th February 2014.
Echoing The Beatles’ own early tours, LET IT BE will play across many venues in 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 same stages that The Beatles played on during their 1963 UK tour. The Beatles played the Liverpool Empire five times in all, in 1963 (three times), 1964 and 1965.
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.
Since opening in London in September 2012, LET IT BE has delighted audiences around the world, including New York, Germany and Monaco, with forthcoming dates in Japan and Moscow.
LET IT BE UK Tour is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions and Annerin Productions.
