Four of Australia’s finest vocalists – DOUG PARKINSON, JOHN PAUL YOUNG, GLENN SHORROCK and JACK JONES – will take to the stage in August for a very special series of concerts celebrating the music and genius of the greatest songwriting team of the modern era, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. LET IT BE: The Beatles Songs of Lennon and McCartney will feature two hours of much loved songs including Yesterday, Blackbird, Let It Be, Dear Prudence, Eleanor Rigby, Come Together and Hey Jude performed in state-of-the-art concert settings.
Together for a mere 10 years, The Beatles led a musical revolution that radically transformed the sound and significance of rock & roll. Their rich, fresh sound and harmonic structure remains unequalled today.
As one of the most important songwriting partnerships of the 20th century, John Lennon and Paul McCartney co-wrote an astonishing 23 No. 1 singles. No songwriting duo ever – or since – have left such an indelible imprint: across continents and across generations. They changed the voice of popular music forever ... and the lives of singer-songwriters everywhere.

Thirty-two of their most popular songs will be performed by four of our most respected singers, backed by 12 of Australia’s most accomplished musicians led by musical director, Paul Berton.
