The Beatles: Eight Days A Week

The band you know. The story you don't.

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week -- The Touring YearsThe Beatles: Eight Days A Week tracks the rise of the Beatles from 1961 to 1966, when they stopped performing live. There’s new material about their refusal to play segregated venues in the American South during their 1964 tour, something given no coverage at the time.

Howard put out a call via social media and collected fascinating footage of the lads onstage and in the streets coping with fame. But it’s the concerts that are so gobsmackingly good, and you can actually hear them. The technical team managed to isolate the original performances directly from the sound board and reduced the volume of fans’ intense screaming. These guys couldn’t hear a thing in large stadiums yet miraculously remained in tune.

As we witness how they grew from boys to men, from writing love songs to tunes with much more depth, from loving their success to loathing their fame, creating prodigiously all the way through, it’s clear that the Beatles phenomenon was like no other.
