It is fifty years since THE BEATLES released their first single ‘Love Me Do’ in October 1962. To celebrate, London’s Prince of Wales Theatre will welcome LET IT BE, a spectacular new West End production featuring more than twenty of The Beatles’ greatest hits for a limited season from September 2012.

Audiences will have the chance to relive The Beatles’ live performances of their early hits including Twist and Shout, She Loves You and All My Lovin’, as well as global mega-hits Yesterday, Come Together, Hey Jude and, of course, Let It Be; all performed by hand-picked master musicians.

LET IT BE is a media rich theatrical concert created by the global phenomenon RAIN, which showcases the works of the world’s most successful rock’n’roll band, using dazzling video footage to tell the story of the band’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces. It is the first time that the Grand Theatrical Rights to The Beatles’ back catalogue have been granted by Sony/ATV for a West End production.

LET IT BE is packed with classic Beatles’ hits including: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields, When I’m 64, Hello Goodbye, Get Back and many more.

Let It Be will run for a limited season from 14th September 2012 until Saturday 19th January 2013 with a press night on 24th September 2012 at 7pm.
