The 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first hit is to be marked with a West End show celebrating their career.
Let It Be has been created by Rain, a production company which began life as a tribute band but went on to make a hit Broadway show about the Fab Four.
The show will feature more than 20 hits by the band and will open at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre, where the quartet played a 1963 Royal Variety Performance.
The four-month run opens on 14 September, less than a month before the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ debut single Love Me Do being released.
Songs to feature in the show include A Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, and Get Back.
