Description

Culturally the Beatles were a global phenomenon - changing all facets of popular music for good, but not just because
they were a band that made great recordings. How big a part did performing in concert play? Would they have achieved
what they did without an early grounding in the dance halls and clubs of Liverpool and Hamburg? After their first year
as a headline-grabbing attraction, why did The Beatles soon tire of the relentless pace of Beatlemania? Through print
and images from the visually-astounding "Daily Mirror" archive, "Across The Universe: On Tour And On Stage" answers
these questions, examining in detail the Beatles as a live act between the key Beatlemania years of 1963-1966 and to
mark the event's 40th anniversary, The Beatles' last ever performance - an impromptu session on a central London
rooftop. "Across The Universe: On Tour And On Stage" takes the reader on a magical mystery tour though ballrooms,
theaters, airports, limos, and stadiums across the globe and along the way, illustrates why The Beatles were seen but
not heard throughout the 1960s.
