They're celebrating the final chapter of the greatest rock 'n' roll story of all time
Following two sold-out tours of The Beatles’ Abbey Road live in 2019/20, ARC is returning in 2021 to present the final Beatles album in all its glory – Let It Be.
Released almost a month after The Beatles break up – and marking the twelfth and final chapter in one of the most successful musical catalogues of all time – it has gone on to be regarded as one of the most controversial rock albums in history.
ARC – Let It Be Live 50th Anniversary Tour Dates
Largely recorded in 1969 – long before the band’s eleventh released album Abbey Road – features many much loved Beatles songs. Some of Paul McCartney’s best songwriting can be found on the eternally celebrated title track, rocker ‘Get Back’ and the melodic ‘The Long and Winding Road’, and ‘Across The Universe’ might just be John Lennon’s opus. George Harrison put the final stamp of approval on his songwriting chops – and led brilliantly into his own solo career – with ‘I Be Mine’, while ‘Two of Us’ shows that no matter how tense the mood, when Lennon and McCartney harmonise together, it is pure beauty.
Now some of Australia’s most-loved and celebrated musicians – who are all self-confessed Beatles tragics – will come together to bring The Beatles’ closing chapter to life on stage.
Collectively known as ARC, the group will feature Kram (Spiderbait), Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I) and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger). Together they’ll perform Let It Be in full, from start to finish, followed by a second set covering the breadth of the Beatles’ rich catalogue.
Joining ARC live on stage throughout the night will be a host of special guests.
ARC will pay tribute to The Beatles with Let It Be Live this September. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au.
