A musical ode to the Fab Four will be twisting and shouting into Sunderland – and you could be there for free.
We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the Help! Golden Anniversary Tour with the Magic of the Beatles when it plays Sunderland Empire on February 6.
The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of hit song Yesterday with an extra-special concert.
The year 1966 saw Lennon and McCartney come of age as songwriters: the Beatles’ 11th EP, Yesterday, and seventh studio album, Revolver, both topped the charts.
Hit stage show The Magic of the Beatles promises to return music fans to this golden era.
Producer Michael Taylor says that the show takes audiences from the Beatles’ mop top roots to the psychedelia of Sgt Pepper and beyond.
“From Love Me Do to Let It Be, it’s packed with more than 30 Beatles chart toppers,” he said.
“Fantastic costumes, brilliant vocals and incredible musicianship come together in a lavish magical musical trip back to yesterday.”
Michael says that The Magic of the Beatles celebrates the most exciting time in pop music history live and in concert.
“The Magic of the Beatles is the most comprehensive, most authentic Beatles show you’ll ever see – even down to original guitars and amps used by the band,” he said.
“Brought to you by the creators of the runaway success The Magic of Motown, all you need is The Magic of the Beatles to celebrate the music of the most famous band in the world.”
He added: “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.”
Tracks recreated by the band include Love Me Do, Twist and Shout, Please Please Me, From Me To You, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Hard Days Night, Can’t Buy Me Love and more.
The performers have brought the magic of the Beatles to the USA, Russia, China and all points between.
It has been seen by David and Victoria Beckham, Sir Richard Branson, Madonna and Guy Ritchie, Tiger Woods, Wayne Rooney, Gordon Ramsey and a host of other worldwide stars.
