The Beatles Live Film Project: 8 Days a Week
FRI 2:00 | SAT 12:00 | SUN 3:30
By the time the band quit touring in August of 1966, The Beatles had performed 166 concerts in 15 countries and 90 cities around the world. The cultural phenomenon their touring helped create, known as “Beatlemania,” was something the world had never seen before and, arguably, hasn’t since. It was the first time much of the world felt truly unified – bound by aspiration and attitude, rather than divided by race, class, religion or nationality.
Directed by Ron Howard, THE BEATLES LIVE FILM PROJECT tells the story of the band’s exceptional touring years – from the perspectives of the band, its world, the fans, and their world. It will examine the impact of those years on each of The Beatles – the toll that touring took on their relationships and the effect it had on their musical evolution, as well as the colossal boost the tours gave to their lifestyle and fame.
