The Beatles’ records live at the London Palladium: How to get tickets for The Analogues
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Beatles themselves stopped touring in August 1966, meaning they never performed some of their greatest tracks to an audience.
Dutch act The Analogues have been performing the post-’66 albums for seven years now, and will be drawing the project to a close in the UK in London on September 26.
With Hello Goodbye (The Very Best of the Studio Years ’66-’70), they will be revisiting classics from Revolver, Magical Mystery Tour, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The White Album, Let It Be and Abbey Road.
The promoters say rather than be a tribute act, the show is “comparable to an orchestra recreating the work of Beethoven and Mozart, but with Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr as the composers”.
Bart van Poppel, musical director of The Analogues, said: “We are looking forward to sharing those highlights with fellow Beatles lovers around the world.
“It’s an incredible experience to us when performing these songs. The people in the audience are as passionate about The Beatles as the musicians on stage.”
The Analogues’ performance of Abbey Road last year attracted five-star reviews from the Sun, the Mail on Sunday, Classic Rock and the Telegraph, which said: “A musical miracle….The Analogues attempted something the Beatles themselves never did: played their final recorded masterpiece, in full, live on stage, in perfect sonic detail….Their Abbey Road, at the Palladium, was pure magic.”
Classic Rock noted: “They don't look like The Beatles. They don't dress like The Beatles. They're Dutch. There's five of them. But they sound exactly like the real thing.”
The Beatles: Get Back
Peter Jackson’s recent documentary gave fans an insight into how the band worked in the studio in their final years.
The Analogues tracked down period-correct instruments to create a homage as near to note perfect as possible, with the band supplemented by an orchestra.
