All You Need is Love is The Beatles like you’ve never heard them before – over 40 of the Fab Four’s greatest hits performed alongside The National Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
A spectacular multi-media concert, All You Need is Love celebrates the incredible catalogue of songs from the best-selling and most influential band ever. It will get its world premiere in 2019 on an 10-date UK and Ireland tour, including London’s Cadogan Hall on Thursday 18 April.
From humble beginnings in 1963 in Liverpool’s Cavern Club to Beatlemania and global chart domination, The Beatles – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – remain today the best-selling band in music history, with sales of over 800 million albums worldwide. The group had more number 1 albums and sold more singles in the UK than any other act. They are also the best-selling music artists in the United States, with sales of 178 million.
All You Need is Love dives into this astonishing body of work and will coincide with a number of 50-year Beatle anniversaries:
1969 saw the release of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine LP and Abbey Road – their 11th studio album – the group gave their final live performance on the roof of the Apple building in London’s Saville Row, and John Lennon privately told the rest of the band in September that he was leaving the group.
All You Need is Love will give fans the chance to celebrate with live performances of tracks including Love Me Do, Twist and Shout, She Loves You, Eleanor Rigby, Yesterday, Hey Jude, Come Together, Let It Be and many, many more. This electrifying multimedia spectacle will transport you back to the magical 60s when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!
Back in July 1967, and in the midst of the summer of love, The Beatles released the single All You Need Is Love. The simple message John, Paul, George and Ringo shared still stands true today. Now, backed by the National Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, All You Need Is Love will fill you with nostalgia and take you back to the heyday of Beatlemania.
