Brand new Part II imagines The Beatles’ reunion concert that never was – a rare treat for fans

Cast announcement for new UK Tour
___________________________________________________________________________

Let It Be: A Celebration Of The Music Of The Beatles returns to the UK for a national tour starting in Summer 2018.

The show comes to the Edinburgh Playhouse from Monday 8 October to Saturday 13 October 2018. Tickets are on sale now.

It has been announced that West End producer Mark Goucher has struck a deal with Canadian Producer Jeff Parry to take over the commercial running of the worldwide hit Beatles musical. Goucher, also CEO at The Everyman Theatre Cheltenham will launch the brand-new production at Wales Millennium Centre in August, which will lead onto a tie up with German producers BB for an extended tour in Germany. It is also hoped that the show will return to a London theatre in late 2018 or early 2019.

Let It Be: A Celebration Of The Music Of The Beatles returns to the UK with a brand new second half of the popular show – giving audiences a rare glimpse of how the band may have continued as a four-piece. Fans will see The Beatles reunite for one night only, with the new section of the show set a decade after the group went their separate ways.

A cast of talented musicians will take to stages across the country as the Fab Four, wowing audiences with their effortless and indistinguishable portrayal as John, Paul, George and Ringo. The performers have already toured the show to some of the biggest stages in the world including Broadway.

The talented cast who will portray the Fab Four in the show have been revealed.

The cast are revealed as Michael Gagliano who will play John Lennon; Emanuele Angeletti as Paul McCartney; John Brosnan as George Harrison; and Ben Cullingworth as Ringo Starr. The band will be joined on stage throughout the tour by musical director Michael Bramwell on keyboards.

Producer Jeff Parry comments: “I grew up listening to The Beatles, they sparked a passion for music which, for me personally, has gone on to become so much more – a career, and a way of life. Their talent, hunger, and incredible ambition inspired me to follow my dreams too. The Beatles were so much more than a group. And it’s unbelievable to think that Let It Be was released 48 years ago, it still sounds as current as it did back in 1970.

“Our strong cast of Michael, Emanuele, John and Ben, along with musical director Michael are going to give audiences a show they have never experienced before – The Beatles’ concert that never was. Developing the show with the new Part II has been a complete labour of love and I am so excited to now introduce this brand new element to UK fans.”

Let It Be has firmly established itself as a successful West End and international touring show. And now the smash-hit stage show has been updated and is back on tour, featuring a brand new Let It Be Part II – which has never been seen before in the UK.

The show is a celebration of the phenomenal music of The Beatles, and has already been seen by more than two million people worldwide, including an acclaimed run in the West End and two UK tours.

Let It Be is the ultimate experience for Beatles fans, and features many of the Fab Four’s best loved songs including A Hard Days Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Twist and Shout, I Want To Hold Your Hand and Strawberry Fields Forever.

The team behind international hit stage show Let It Be, have come together once again to create a very special show for fans by incorporating a brand new Let It Be Part II into the show.

The updated Let It Be production will be premiered in the UK when it opens at Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre on 21 August 2018. The show will then embark on a UK, European and international tour taking countries including Germany and North America.

Beatles fans are invited to join John, Paul, George and Ringo for a great night of live music. Enjoy the early beginnings at the word famous Cavern Club, through to the height of Beatlemania.

In a twist from the original Let It Be show, audiences will then be taken on a Magical Mystery Tour to experience the concert that never was. Part II of Let It Be is the brand new part of the show, giving audiences the rare opportunity to see The Beatles reunite for one night only, set a decade after the group went their separate ways.

After opening in Cardiff, the updated Let It Be show will then visit Cheltenham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Dublin, Hull, Edinburgh, Dartford, and Manchester.
