Beatles Abbey Road Sessions Re-staging Set For A Tour

(Classic Rock) The Sessions, a live re-staging of The Beatles at Abbey Road, is to tour the UK next year. The tour, which features a cast of 45, will kick-off with a charity preview event at Liverpool's Echo Arena on March 30.

Inspired by Here, There and Everywhere, the memoir of former Abbey Road sound engineer Geoff Emerick, each of the albums recorded at the studio will become a 'Suite' featuring seven vocalists (two 'Johns', two 'Pauls', two 'Georges' and one 'Ringo'), while a further seven musicians will recreate the band's instrumentation and a 21-piece orchestra will provide musical arrangements.

"This video is a small window into what we're trying to achieve, and the passion and expertise in which we'll do it," says executive director Stig Edgren. "With the world class team we've assembled, the clarity of our vision and the amazing venues we'll be touring, we have an incredibly exciting opportunity to create the biggest, most spectacular, most musically authentic Beatles show ever. We wanted to give people a taste of the process by which we will bring The Sessions to life, and hope they see our commitment to delivering the finest Beatle production ever." The organisers have made a short film to explain how it'll all work. Read more and check out the video here.
