The Beatles Abbey Road recordings replicated in touring show

Date Posted: 17/09/2015

The Sessions, a live re-staging of recordings made by The Beatles at Abbey Road studios will go on an 11-date tour of the UK in spring 2016, following a sell-out premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 1st April.

The production, which is part stage show and part musical documentary, will travel to venues across the country from 6h May, when it opens at the Brighton Centre.

The show is set in a reproduction of the iconic Abbey Road Studio 2. Beatles fans going to see The Sessions will see new live renditions of the albums recorded there by the Liverpool band.

No fewer than 45 people will take to the stage to ensure that the experience is as sonically authentic to the original recordings as it is possible.

Jef Hanlon, the show’s producer said: “An incredible amount of research has gone into the show - we wanted to be as true to the original process as possible.

“All instrumentation, arrangements and vocals will be performed identically to the original recordings - there will even be seven singers to recreate the multi-tracked vocals pioneered by The Beatles.

“This show does not seek to be a look-a-like show, but rather a sound-a-like, with the singers being the best Beatles imitators in the world. It’s a must for Beatles fans of all ages.”

The Sessions calls at a number of venues throughout next April and May including Nottingham Capital FM Arena on 4th May and the Birmingham Barclaycard Arena on 13th May.
