Let your mind drift back to 1964 when the Beatles made their U.S. television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show." This is just one of the many iconic moments in Beatle history that you are transported to during the show. "We have a live show tonight, but what I'd like to know right now is do we have a live audience?" exclaims an Ed Sullivan impersonator who acts as both your host and tour guide for the different eras of Beatles music visited in the show. He is met with an uproarious response from the audience in anticipation of the upcoming act. Next, the curtain rises, unveiling the clean cut, mop-topped quartet, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, singing "I Want to Hold Your Hand." People in the audience cheer and sing along to the well known tune.
The performers play all of the songs live on the same brand of instruments and amps used by the Beatles, without tapes, sequences or backing tracks. Their remarkable attention to detail with every song makes it seem as though you were listening to an actual recording from the real band.
