The Magic of The Beatles

The Magic of The Beatles

Hits include the likes of Love Me Do, Twist and Shout, Hey Jude, Let It Be and many, many, more.

The Magic of the Beatles recreates the group’s legendary live performances, and more. Taking you from their Mop Top roots to the psychedelia of Sgt Pepper and beyond, from Love Me Do to Let It Be.

Fantastic costumes, brilliant vocals and incredible musicianship come together in a lavish magical musical trip back to yesterday.


In the autumn of 1964 the Fab Four sold out two dates at Sheffield City Hall off the back of their number one album and single A Hard Day’s Night.

The film of the same name turned John, Paul, George and Ringo into movie stars, and the date Monday, November 9, 1964, is recalled by a reviewer as “the night when Sheffield went Beatle-barmy”.

The UK’s top Beatles live concert show the Magic of the Beatles is celebrating the 50th anniversary of A Hard Day’s Night with an extra-special nationwide tour retracing the group’s 1964 British tour, including Penistone Paramount.

Show producer Michael Taylor says that the hit show combines superb musicianship with golden reminiscences in equal measure.

“What’s made the show’s A Hard Day’s Night Tour extra-special are the amazing recollections Beatles fans have shared with us on the road,” he says.

“The local paper described the fans at the Sheffield shows as 4,000 ‘frenzied screamagers’ and it’s reported that three girls in the audience fainted.”

Michael says that they would love to hear from anyone who was at the Sheffield City Hall on the night.

“Fantastic costumes, brilliant vocals and incredible musicianship come together,” says Michael, “in a lavish magical musical trip back to yesterday.

“A Hard Day’s Night with The Magic of the Beatles celebrates the most exciting time in pop music history live and in concert.”

The show has entertained celebrities galore, including David and Victoria Beckham, Sir Richard Branson, Madonna and Guy Ritchie, Tiger Woods, Wayne Rooney, Gordon Ramsey and a host of other worldwide stars.

The Magic of the Beatles claims to be the most comprehensive, most authentic Beatles on tour – even down to original guitars and amps used by the band.

The cast of the Magic of the Beatles have performed in America, Russia, China and all points between and is produced by the creators of runaway success The Magic of Motown.

“All you need is The Magic of the Beatles to celebrate the music of the most famous band in the world,” says Michael.


The Beatles’ film A Hard Day’s Night broke box office records, and is credited for introducing the concept of today’s pop music video.

It was filmed at a time when Beatles singles occupied the top five positions of the official American singles chart – a feat never to be repeated by any other artist.

Here in the UK, the Fab Four continued to top the UK singles charts that same year with Can’t Buy Me Love, A Hard Day’s Night, All My Loving and I Feel Fine.

The set list for the Sheffield City Halls show consisted of 10 songs: Twist And Shout, Money (That’s What I Want), Can’t Buy Me Love, Things We Said Today, I’m Happy Just To Dance With You, I Should Have Known Better, If I Fell, I Wanna Be Your Man, A Hard Day’s Night and Long Tall Sally.

The support acts were The Rustiks, Sounds Incorporated, Michael Haslam, The Remo Four, Tommy Quickly and Mary Wells, and the compère was Bob Bain. The evening’s two shows began at 6.30pm and 8.50pm.


“The Magic of the Beatles is a two-hour spectacular featuring superb costumes and a cast of skilled musicians and singers,” says show producer Michael Taylor.

“It authentically recreates the live concert shows of John, Paul, George and Ringo that generated fan hysteria never seen before or since.”

The production has been on a UK-wide tour and visits towns and even, in some cases, venues that presented The Beatles during the early Sixties.

The Magic of the Beatles retraces The Beatles infamous live shows and offers an insight into Beatlemania at its height.

Unarguably the greatest band in the world, ever, the cast choose from a set list comprising of more than 50 million-sellers for each show.

Who could have imagined just what was to come when the world was introduced to The Beatles in 1960? Transferring their incredible live shows from residencies in Hamburg to the now-famous Cavern Club, they were eventually discovered by Brian Epstein and signed by George Martin.

The rest is the most important chapter of pop music history.

The cast have appeared alongside The Merseybeats, The Searchers, The Hollies, The Bay City Rollers, Madness, Boy George, Kula Shaker, Blue, Snow Patrol, Coldplay and Girls Aloud.

They have performed in virtually every country in Europe including France, Germany, Italy, Holland and Norway, and have also toured Russia, The USA, the Caribbean, China and the Middle East.
