Backbeat

At Duke of York's Theatre

Price from € 45.30

Backbeat - the adaptation of the 1994 film by Iain Softley on the birth of the Beatles - will be rock 'n' rolling its way to London's Duke of York Theatre for its West End premiere from October.

Backbeat is the story of how The Beatles 'became' The Beatles - when John Lennon , Paul McCartney , George Harrison , Pete Best , Stuart Sutcliffe  and Ringo Starr embarked on their journey from the famous docks of Liverpool to search for success in the seedy red light district of Hamburg, working eight days a week, in the clubs of the tawdry Reeperbahn, performing rock 'n' roll covers night after night.

Backbeat features the all-time rock 'n' roll classics that the Beatles cut their teeth with - 'Twist and Shout ', 'Rock 'N' Roll Music ', 'Long Tall Sally ', 'Please Mr Postman ' and 'Money ' - live on stage as performed by 'The Beatles'.
