The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years follows John, Paul, George and Ringo in the earlier parts of their career, between 1962-66 while they were touring the world, causing the cultural phenomenon that became known as Beatlemania
Featuring rare and exclusive footage, Ron Howard’s film will explore how they came together and delve into the inner workings of The Beatles – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective careers together.
The film is produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison and will focus on The Beatles journey from their early days at The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
In August 1965 The Beatles played the very first stadium rock concert to 55,000 people. The now legendary Shea Stadium show was filmed and the footage has been fully restored in 4k and the sound remastered at Abbey Road Studios. The concert footage will air exclusively as part of the theatrical release of Ron Howard's documentary.
