The famous recording sessions will be recreated in a special concert at the Royal Albert Hall
Between 1962 and 1969, The Beatles recorded some of their best-known albums at London’s Abbey Road Studios, including Revolver, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the White Album.
Period equipment, and a team of 39 musicians and eight singers will be used during the show, which will span the band’s entire recording career at the studios, and will feature a full-sized reconstruction of Abbey Road’s Studio Two.
Executive producer Stig Edgren told AFP that the performance will be “an honest, respectful and accurate recreation of how musical history was made”.
In an interview with The Times, Edgren also empthasised the fact the show will focus on recreating the music, rather than the appearance of The Beatles, and that that performers will wear “no Sgt Pepper Outfits, no wigs”.
“I didn’t want it to be another lookalike show,” he said.
The Sessions at Abbey Road is inspired by Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles, the 2006 memoir of The Beatles’ studio engineer Geoff Emerick, who will also act as a creative consultant on the project.
