A first-look image for Academy Award-winner Ron Howard’s authorised and highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles’ phenomenal early career The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years has been released.
The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim.
Ron Howard’s film will explore how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become an extraordinary phenomenon. It will reveal their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, exploring The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities.
The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
Featuring rare and exclusive footage, the film is produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.
