Cast Announced For Let It Be 2019 UK Tour

/

The super talented cast of singers and musicians appearing in the 2019 UK tour of Let It Be: A Celebration Of The Music Of The Beatles has been announced.

The smash-hit show returns to stages during Spring 2019 to present the updated show to UK audiences.

The new UK tour starts in Portsmouth on 23 April, before visiting Inverness, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Blackpool, Bath, Bradford and Norwich.

Emanuele Angeletti (Paul McCartney); John Brosnan (George Harrison); and Ben Cullingworth (Ringo Starr) all resume their respective roles from the previous tour. Richard Jordan as John Lennon completes the Fab Four line-up. The band will be joined on stage throughout the tour by musical director Michael Bramwell on keyboards.

Let It Be is a celebration of the iconic music of The Beatles and has already been seen by more than two million people worldwide, including a run in the West End and two UK tours.

The acclaimed theatrical concert has now been updated and features an all-new Let It Be Part II reunion concert. The new show proved such a hit with audiences and critics alike when it was premiered across the UK last Autumn, that a sell out European Tour followed.

Beatles fans are invited to join John, Paul, George and Ringo for an unforgettable night of live music – with Manny, John, Ben, Richard and Michael playing and singing live. 

The Let It Be tour is made possible by West End producer Mark Goucher and Canadian producer Jeff Parry, a huge Beatles’ fan who created the show.

Act One takes audiences through the early days of the band as they embarked on their musical journey and onwards to the heights of global Beatlemania.The first half of the evening features many of their most famous songs including I Want to Hold Your HandDay Tripper, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Penny Lane, A Day In The Life, Come Together, Get Back, and The End.

In a twist from the original Let It Be show, Act Two is set a decade after The Beatles went their separate ways. It gives fans a rare glimpse of how the Fab Four could have Come Together once again to perform – and is not to be missed.

Audiences are taken on a memorable and unique step back in time to the reunion concert taking place on 9 October 1980 – it’s John Lennon’s 40thBirthday. This is the ultimate concert that never was. Just imagine: the band reunites for one night only. The band’s solo material featured includes Starting Over, Band On The Run, Black Bird, Got My Mind Set On You, My Sweet Lord, Live and Let Die, and Imagine.
