Steven Tyler Says Lost Beatles Concert Best Ever
The concert is featured in a new filmA new film entitled The Beatles: The Lost Concert features a remastered version of a film documenting the band's first ever US concert along with new contributions from some famous Beatles fans.
Aerosmith's Steven Tyler has high praise for the concert, saying that "Just watching that is a miracle. To me it would be like watching Jesus preaching on the hilltops. Same notes, same vocals, same drum fills, same perfection. It blows away every performance I’ve ever seen – including Elvis.”
The producers say: "The Beatles: The Lost Concert is a new documentary recounting the whole story of the birth of Beatlemania in America, from an initial phone call from US promoter Sid Bernstein to the manager of a then-unknown band from the UK, all the way thorough to their first-ever historic and triumphant US concert.”
The concert took place two days after the band's legendary Ed Sullivan Show appearance. They played 12 songs to an 8000 strong audience, which was the biggest crowd they had played for at that time. The concert was professionally filmed and then broadcast shortly afterwards, but it hasn't been seen in its entirety since. When it's released it will be the only complete Beatles concert available to fans.
The movie is released in the US in May. No word on a UK released just yet.
