The Beatles come to life in Revolution, the new authorized symphonic tribute to the Fab Four, featuring top vocalists and musicians accompanied by Grammy-winner Jeff Tyzik’s new arrangements, transcribed and arranged from the original master recordings at Abbey Road. Accompanied by hundreds of rare and unseen photos from the historic, London-based archives of The Beatles’ official fan magazine – The Beatles Book Monthly – along with stunning video and animation, Revolution takes audiences on a magical musical and visual journey of The Beatles. The production features arrangements of over 25 top hits, including "Ticket to Ride”, "Penny Lane”, "All You Need Is Love”, "Get Back”, "Here Comes the Sun”, and "Hey Jude.”
In addition to the video and animation seen during the concert, Revolution also features a unique 30-minute, pre-concert video showcasing even more of the rare and previously unseen photos from the historic archives of The Beatles Book Monthly, whose photographer was granted unparalleled, behind-the-scenes access to the Fab Four’s concerts, tours and legendary Abbey Road recording sessions. The limited concert edition of Looking Through You: Rare & Unseen Photographs from The Beatles Book Archive (a visual showcase of The Beatles told through 300 Beatles Book Monthly images and published by Omnibus Press) will be available for purchase, along with other official Beatles merchandise and limited print photos.
