SHOUT AND SHOUT – THE BEATLES IN AMERICA
Wednesday, August 30 at 21.15 on Sky Arte and streaming on NOW, also available on request.
Six months after their first triumphal visit to the US, the Beatles returned to the US for their first real North American tour. Beginning in August 1964 in San Francisco, they toured the country, playing to half a million fans, setting records for their concerts and causing mass hysteria wherever they went. By the time the tour wrapped up in New York City in September, they had played 32 shows at 25 venues in 24 cities – all in just 31 days. This documentary captures the music, chaos and madness of this vibrant tour with rare archival footage. We will witness their arrival at airports, hotel takeovers, press conferences and concerts. We will hear the speeches of their most ardent fans and at the same time we will witness the most direct and frank criticism. Let’s relive the emotions of the days when four boys from Liverpool captured our hearts and minds, making their voices echo across America. We will understand why, after almost fifty years, their music still has a strong influence on new generations of musicians and producers. The evening dedicated to this famous band will continue with the songs of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper&Beyond and In India with The Beatles.
