The Beatles are coming! The Beatles are coming!

Many of our readers first saw The Beatles in 1964; gathered around the television on Sunday night to watch the Fab Four from Liverpool make their first North American appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. After Elvis – The Beatles were the next step in rock ‘n’ roll music that changed popular music forever. Songs were then created by the groups who performed them. Live performances had to take place in arenas and even outdoor stadiums to accommodate the demand for tickets.

The music of The Beatles defined a generation, captured the hearts and ideals of millions, and now Canadians will be able to relive the memories with a high quality musical that has earned rave reviews. Direct from London’s West End and Broadway the international hit show, LET IT BE – A Celebration of the Music of The Beatles, will make its debut in Canada, with limited engagements across the country, starting in January.

Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Twist and Shout, Get Back, I Wanna Hold Your Hand and Strawberry Fields, the tour will stop in Montreal for one night only.
