The Sgt Pepper Show is a tough act to follow. Sold out over five nights in November 2017, our last major show was a unique combination of music and theatre.
For our next big outing we’ve chosen Oxford’s iconic Sheldonian Theatre as the setting for an immersive evening of music, accompanied by a hypnotic light show.
For one night only we will perform The Beatles’ Revolver and Sgt Pepper albums live, with a 12-piece orchestra and Indian classical musicians.
This time around the music will be accompanied by a liquid light show performed by the renowned lighting designer and inventor Peter Wynne-Willson. Peter has worked with the likes of Pink Floyd and it’s a huge honour to have him working with us for this show.
Previous Oxford Beatles gigs have been dominated by The Beatles’ early material. Songs from the Studio Years sees us focusing on the more complex Beatles songs that marked their transition from a live touring act to a studio band.
The show will include songs from Revolver, spanning all the way to Let It Be, a four-year period of recording that includes classics such as Something, Here Comes The Sun and Revolution.
Performing as a five-piece, audiences can expect to hear some of the more complex songs from this period, with the band reproducing the iconic Billy Preston keys parts of the late Beatles material for the first time (Get Back, Don’t Let Me Down).
