The Beatles' Abbey Road Sessions Turned Into Stage Show

The band's legendary recording sessions at the London studio will be turned into a huge stage show, but producers have warned there'll be no Sgt.Pepper's outfits worn.

Beatles - Abbey Road

The Beatles recorded some of their most seminal work in the legendary Abbey Road studios and a new stage show will attempt to bring those recordings to life.

The Royal Albert Hall show on 1 April 2016 will see a team of eight singers and 39 musicians bring tracks like Hey Jude and Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds to life. They'll use period equipment to recreate the Fab Four's sound as closely as possible.

Producers told reporters they were aiming for "an honest, respectful and accurate recreation of how musical history was made". They had a warning for anyone expecting a tribute act though: there'll be no Sgt.Pepper uniforms or wigs to make the singers look like John, Paul, George and Ringo.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 17 June, priced around £55.
