Ron Howard To Direct Documentary About The Beatles’ Touring Years

posted by Oscar July 16, 2014

How’s this for something to look forward to? Acclaimed director, Ron Howard has taken the task to direct a documentary on the biggest and most influential band the world has ever seen: The Beatles.

A press release today details that Apple Corps Ltd., White Horse Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have announced they will produce a new authorized documentary for Apple, based on the first part of The Beatles’ career — the touring years. Along with Ron Howard’s directorial services, the doc will be produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison (John Lennon and George Harrison’s respective widows).

This film will give further look into their journey from The Beatles’ beginnings at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, to their time in Hamburg to their last public concert in Candlestick Park, San Francisco, in 1966.

See some clips on what those early tours looked like above. For the full story: http://www.thebeatlesliveproject.com

With some background info on each member’s early days before becoming world stars and some insights from the 2 remaining members talking to David Letterman about that famous performance, the tribute special was a complete spectacle thanks to the main attraction being the music itself. Guest stars performing Beatles classics included Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, Imagine Dragons, Dave Grohl, Gary Clark, Jr., Alicia Keys and John Legend, among many others and we even got performances from surviving members Ringo Starr and Sir Paul McCartney. See them all below.
