'All You Need Is Love' was the ecstatic pop symphony The Beatles wrote to throw their arms around the world on the first global satellite TV link at the height of 1967's summer of love. It was the inspiration for this dazzling and daring new large-scale concert production which plays for one night only at the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre on Sunday the 28th of July.
'All You Need Is Love' is an epic concert production featuring 35 musicians and singers including Ciaran Gribbin, Jack Jones, Jackson Thomas, Rai Thistlethwayte and the excellence that is synonymous with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
'All You Need Is Love' celebrates the songs that captivated a generation and continue to inspire music fans across the world. Included in this stellar performance, will be live renditions of 30 Beatles masterpieces, including 'I am The Walrus', 'Eleanor Rigby', 'Yesterday', 'A Day in the Life', 'Across the Universe', 'Let It Be', 'Hey Jude' and many more incredible tracks which have been selected from The Beatles back catalogue for their ability to benefit from a world-class orchestral arrangement.
"A mammoth production layered with orchestral grandeur and old-fashioned rock 'n' roll that spans all the colours of the psychedelic rainbow." - The Review (Beatles Back2Back, Jan 2014)
To celebrate the distinctive contributions made by The Beatles collaborator, arranger, orchestrator and producer, Sir George Martin, there is a supercharged rock band playing alongside Auckland's premier orchestra, the APO.
Producers Phil Bathols and Tim Woods have received praise and recognition for their Beatles' shows including 'Let it Be', 'The White Album Concert', 'Beatles Back2Back' and most recently 'Beatles First 5'. All have been enthusiastically received by fans, bringing together exceptional musical talent and delivering a faithful, quality and extravagant live music and sound concert experience.
Together for a mere ten years, The Beatles led a global musical revolution that radically transformed the sound and significance of rock & roll. 'All You Need Is Love' is your opportunity to celebrate The Beatles in a rock and symphony concert event.
