LET IT BE: Beatles Concert Direct From London's West End & Broadway to Launch in U.S.

Article Contributed by SRO | Published on Wednesday, January 21, 2015

The acclaimed Beatles concert LET IT BE will launch a U.S. trek starting Wednesday, February 18. LET IT BE is the only show with grand rights to The Beatles’ music, and it has played to rave reviews and sold-out crowds on London’s West End and on Broadway in New York City. Jam-packed with over 40 of the Beatles’ greatest hits, LET IT BE has already been seen by over 1 million people worldwide. The February trek will mark LET IT BE’s first North American tour after Broadway.  Following the U.S. and Canadian run of shows, LET IT BE will return to the U.K. for a series of dates at London’s Garrick Theatre before heading to Ireland in October 2015.

For the past 50 years, the music of The Beatles has touched millions of people around the world, and yet were experienced live in concert by very few. LET IT BE brings The Beatles’ incredible songs to a whole new audience of music lovers. All of the music is performed live before the audience so fans can relive The Beatles’ meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the heights of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces, with live performances of early tracks. A partial set list from LET IT BE includes “Hard Day's Night,” “Day Tripper,” “Twist and Shout,’ “Get Back,” “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and “Strawberry Fields,” as well as global mega-hits “Yesterday,” “Hey Jude,” “Come Together” and, of course, “Let It Be.” LET IT BE will play for 'one night only' in most cities (see all dates below). Travel back to the magical 60’s when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

Produced and created by Annerin Productions, LET IT BE is the only show featuring the music of The Beatles which has played both the West End in London and Broadway in New York City. Annerin Productions was originally involved with RAIN: A Tribute To The Beatles, which they helped evolve from playing cruise ships in 2004, to a successful run on Broadway in 2010. Annerin was involved in a lawsuit from RAIN when it took LET IT BE to London’s West End in 2012. RAIN has not returned to Broadway since 2011. As co-creators, the lawsuit was found to be without merit and the case was dropped. In just over two years, LET IT BE has gone worldwide with performances in Moscow, Japan, all throughout the U.K., Singapore, France, Germany, Switzerland and New Zealand.  The February trek will mark LET IT BE’s first North American tour after Broadway
