Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the album Help!, The Magic of The Beatles is coming to Retford this weekend.
In 1965, the Beatles conquered America and their movie Help! was a big hit.
Help! was one of the Fab Four’s three chart-topping albums that year and the title track was one of three number one singles they also had in 1965.
Now, The Magic of The Beatles celebrates this momentous year by authentically returning music fans to that golden era.
“This is the most complete Beatles stage show on tour,” said Michael Taylor, the show’s producer.
“The Magic of the Beatles is a two-hour spectacular featuring superb costumes and a cast of skilled musicians and singers.
“It authentically recreates the live concert shows of John, Paul, George and Ringo that generated fan hysteria never seen before or since.
“The Magic of the Beatles not only authentically returns music fans to this golden era, it takes lovers of The Beatles on a magical musical trip back to yesterday, taking you from their mop top roots to the psychedelia of Sgt Pepper and beyond.
“Fantastic costumes, brilliant vocals and incredible musicianship come together to cover all of The Beatles biggest hits – from Love Me Do to Let It Be
The production has been on a UK-wide tour and visits towns and even, in some cases, venues that presented The Beatles themselves during the early 1960s.
Undoubtedly the greatest band in the world, ever , who could have imagined just what was to come when the world was introduced to The Beatles in 1960?
Transferring their incredible live shows from residencies in Hamburg to the now-famous Cavern Club, they were eventually discovered by Brian Epstein and signed by George Martin.
