THE AUTHORITATIVE Beatles live concert show is heading to Buxton in the New Year, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s first number one single.
In 1963, the single Please Please Me launched John, Paul, George and Ringo’s chart-topping career. It announced the arrival of a band that was to become the biggest-selling recording artists in the world.
During the Sixties, the Fab Four’s live shows saw fan hysteria never seen before or since – leading to the coining of the phrase ‘Beatlemania’.
“The Magic of the Beatles superbly recreates these legendary live performances, and more,” said show producer Michael Taylor.
The two-hour spectacular promises to transport music fans from The Beatles’ Mop Top roots to the psychedelia of Sgt Pepper and beyond, from Love Me Do to Let It Be.
”Fantastic costumes, brilliant vocals and incredible musicianship Come Together in a lavish magical musical trip back to yesterday,” added Michael.
“Please Please Me was The Beatles very first number one hit and was the genesis of the greatest band in the world. Fifty years on, this fantastic show ensures the Fab Four’s incredible musical legacy lives on... live and in concert.”
The Magic of the Beatles - The Golden Anniversary Tour comes to Buxton Opera House on Saturday January 12, 2013, at 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £17 and £19, are available from the box office on 0845 127 2190 or online at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
