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 explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, "The Beatles." It delves into their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, highlighting The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film focuses 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.
Also features newly, unearthed footage of The Beatles perfoming at Shea Stadium
on August 15th 1965 in what was to be the first rock concert ever
staged in a stadium in front of more than 55,000 people. The event was
filmed using fourteen 35mm cameras by Ed Sullivan Productions and Brian
Epstein and for the very first time, the fully restored, remastered,
30-minute performance will be available to screen as part of the
worldwide theatrical release of Academy Award®-winner Ron Howard’s
authorized documentary feature film.
