(Caution: The following article may ensue symptoms of Beatlemania)
The Beatles are headed back to the big screen.
Documentary producer Iambic Media, in partnership with Ace Arts and and Screenvision, is bringing The Fab Four’s first full-length U.S concert to theaters across the nation: “The Beatles: The Lost Concert.”
Deadline.com reports that the 92 minute documentary covers the band’s historic U.S arrival, the birth of Beatlemania in America, and ‘their first-ever full U.S. concert performance from February 11, 1964 at D.C’s Washington Coliseum, the only complete Beatles’ concert available to fans, one which has remained unseen by movie theater audiences across the nation for over 47 years.”
“The Lost Concert” features interviews and commentary from Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Chuck Berry, Mark Ronson, and over 20 other influential artists, journalists and fans alike.
The 12-song set, including “I Saw Her Standing There” and “She Loves You,” was recorded in front of 8,000 screaming fans just a mere two days after the Beatles’ appearance on the Ed Sullivan show.
The film is set to premiere at New York’s Ziegfield Theatre on May 6, but will be available to be viewed nation wide on May 17 and 22.
