Magic of The Beatles in new London West End show to mark 50 years since Love Me Do

12:17 30 March 2012

The 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first hit is to be marked with a new West End show celebrating their career.

Let It Be has been created by Rain, a production company which began life as a tribute band but went on to make a hit Broadway show about the Fab Four.

The show will feature more than 20 hits by the band and will open at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre - where the quartet famously played a 1963 Royal Variety Performance.

The four-month run opens on September 14, just less than a month before the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ debut single Love Me Do being released.

Tracks to feature in the show include A Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields Forever and Get Back.
