About this show

Backbeat is the story of how The Beatles 'became' The Beatles - when John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe embarked on their journey from the famous docks of Liverpool to search for success in the seedy red light district of Hamburg. There they worked eight days a week, in the clubs of the tawdry Reeperbahn, performing rock 'n' roll covers night after night. All time rock 'n' roll classics that the Beatles cut their teeth with - 'Twist & Shout', 'Rock & Roll Music', 'Long Tall Sally' 'Please Mr Postman' and 'Money' - are all performed live on stage in Backbeat.
