Four Lads Who Shook The World – The Beatles Story: Part 1
In July 1957, a young man played a gig in a church garden party and another young lad showed up to watch… and thus began the most prolific and successful musical phenomenon in history: The Beatles. The world had never seen anything like them, and, in all likelihood, never will again. Part 1 tells the story of their early beginnings in 1957 through to their last performance in America in 1966: from the cavern club in Liverpool to the seedy clubs in the red light district of Hamburg, and then on to America. Everywhere they went, pandemonium—perhaps better described by the new word of the day: Beatlemania! The Beatles re-invented the music industry both as an art form and a business. This musical revue visits the triumphs and challenges that they encountered upon their meteoric rise to fame and fortune, set to the infectious music of four lads who shook the world!
