Check out the trailer for the upcoming music documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years, by renowned director Ron Howard.
Seriously who doesn’t love The Beatles?
The greatest band in music history gets the documentary treatment from Ron Howard, who won the Best Director Oscar for his film A Beautiful Mind (the film also took the Best Picture award the same year).
This latest documentary takes a look back at the band’s touring years covering 1963 to 1966 and features rare and unseen footage, along with interviews with the surviving band members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as archival footage of the band in their heyday.
The Beatles were (and still are to a degree) one of the most popular bands of all time, spawning a massive craze known as Beatlemania back in the early 60’s.
The band was also not without controversy, as some of the anti-war messages in their music and their attitudes at the time were frowned upon.
It looks like it will all be touched upon in the documentary, which could make this the definitive documentary on the band.
The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years releases Friday 16 September in Australia and you can book tickets now from the official site here.
