A stage show celebrating the music of The Beatles will stop at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen for six nights.

The acclaimed show has already been seen by more than two million people worldwide, including a run in the west end and two UK tours.

The new tour, which will come to the city between May 13 and May 18, coincides with the 50th anniversary of the band playing together for the final time, as well as marking 50 years since their Abbey Road album was released.

Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects, Ben Torrie, said: “This show is an excellent celebration of the story and music behind one of music’s greatest ever bands.

“It is an absolute must-see for any Beatles fan, and we are delighted to be bringing it to His Majesty’s Theatre.”

The first half of the evening will feature some of their most famous hits including Come Together, Penny Lane and Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts.

Let It Be producer Jeff Parry said: “The original Let It Be was a hit with Beatles fans all over the world, but UK audiences’ reaction to the new show and the new Act Two reunion concert that never was, has been nothing short of phenomenal.

“It may be almost half a century since The Beatles split, but their popularity and their influence just seems to keep growing, with their incredible and creative catalogue of music attracting a whole new generation of fans.

“And with so many important anniversaries during 2019, we’re delighted to take this special show to thousands more Beatles fans here in the UK.”

Tickets will go on sale to APA Friends on Thursday 24 January and general sale on Tuesday 29 January.
