Rooftop Concert Launches Let It Be

Let It Be, the Beatles musical which opens this September at the Prince of Wales Theatre, announced its arrival in the West End yesterday with a spectacular gig atop the Trafalgar Hotel.

The rooftop performance, which comes just over a month before the show’s opening, included Beatles’ hits Twist and Shout, A Hard Day's Night and title track Let It Be.

The event was intended to mirror the band’s performance on top of the Apple building in 1969.

The show coincides with the 50th anniversary of the release of The Beatles' first single Love Me Do, which was released on 5 October 1962.

The 'pre-fab four' performers were Emanuelle Angeletti, Reuven Gershon, Stephen Hill and Gordon Elsmore. They will rotate roles with James Fox, John Brosnan, Michael Gagliano, Ian Garcia and Phil Martin.

The Prince of Wales Theatre is currently home to Mamma Mia!, which moves to the Novello Theatre on 6 September to make way for Let It Be.
