Four Lads Who Shook The World – The Beatles Story: Part 2

It was twenty years ago today…well actually, it’s about forty five years ago (ouch)! That’s when Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play, and that’s where Four Lads Who Shook the World: Part 2 kicks off. This sequel to last season’s popular hit will conclude our story, taking us through the incredibly creative era of 1967 – 1970. Back from America and determined to never perform live again, The Beatles embarked on the most creative and incredible journey in pop music history. From Sgt. Peppers and Magical Mystery Tour in 1967 to Apple and the White Album in 1968, the Beatles changed everything. 1969 and 1970 saw the Four Lads venture off as individuals both personally and musically, but still managed to record two of the greatest albums of all time; Abbey Road, a crowning achievement in all aspects and Let it Be, a virtual documentary on the demise of the greatest band of all time.

Featuring Hit Beatles songs from 1967-1970
