Sunday, December 3 at 9 pm. From Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years tells the story of these exceptional touring years from the perspectives of the band, its orbit, the fans, and their world. The film recreates the touring experience through the eyes of the band members themselves, where every stop was an adventure.
Along the way, the film delves into the inner workings of the group – how they made decisions, created their music, and built a collective career together – as well as the effect those years had on their personal and musical evolution. But while the band created the spark, it was young people around the globe who created the firestorm. The film also explores the incomparable electricity between performer and audience that turned the music into a movement, a common experience that became something sublime.
