Why See Backbeat?

Backbeat is the story of how the Beatles were founded;  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, Germany.

The compelling triangular relationship between the band?s original bassist Stuart Sutcliffe, the German photographer Astrid Kirchherr with whom he fell in love, and his best friend John Lennon, became an intrinsic part of The Beatles'  story  and placed them on an unstoppable trajectory onto the world stage.

Directed by the award-winning David Leveaux, Backbeat features all-time rock 'n. roll classics including Love Me Do, PS I Love You, Twist & Shout, Rock 'N' Roll Music, Long Tall Sally, Please Mr Postman and Money live on stage as perfformed by the real band.
