New version of Beatles musical will open in Cardiff

A stage show featuring the Beatles’ music has been updated, ahead of a UK tour starting in Cardiff.

The team behind Let It Be have created a new production, incorporating Let It Be Part II into the show.

In a twist from the original, Part II imagines The Beatles reuniting for one night only, a decade after the stars went their separate ways.

The show features many of the Fab Four’s most popular songs including A Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Twist and Shout, I Want To Hold Your Hand and Strawberry Fields Forever.

The updated Let It Be production will have its UK premiere when it opens at Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre on August 20.

The show will next visit Cheltenham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Hull, Edinburgh, Dartford and Manchester.

It will then embark on a European and international tour, taking in countries including Germany and the US.
