THE BEATLES’ ABBEY ROAD LIVE: Bringing one of the greatest records of all time to life – live on stage

Featuring: Kram (Spiderbait), Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I), Darren Middleton (Powderfinger) and Special Guests

In celebration of Abbey Road’s 50th anniversary, some of Australia’s most respected musicians and members of iconic groups, collectively known as ARC — Kram (SPIDERBAIT), Mark Wilson (JET), Davey Lane (YOU AM I) and Darren Middleton (POWDERFINGER) — all self-confessed Beatles tragics, will faithfully and lovingly bring The Beatles’ most audacious creation to life on stage, performing Abbey Road in full, from start to finish, followed by a second set comprising of a selection of hits spanning the breadth of The Beatles’ career and catalogue.

Abbey Road – The Beatles’ swansong and their crowning achievement as a recording group – is a stately, majestic, playful yet fiercely rocking masterpiece of pop music, regarded as one of the greatest records of all time.

Joining ARC live on stage will be special guests Ash Naylor (Paul Kelly, Even and Rockwiz), Linda Bull (The Black Sorrows, Vika and Linda Bull), Brett Wolfenden (The Pictures, Jim Keays) and James Fleming (Eagle and the Worm, Bob Evans).

Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band The Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. It was an immediate commercial success reaching #1 in the UK and US. Over time, the album became viewed as among The Beatles’ best and many critics have ranked it as one of the greatest albums of all time.

Abbey Road spent 81 weeks on the UK albums chart, 12 weeks at #1 on the Billboard chart and was certified 12-times platinum by the RIAA in 2001, selling in excess of 31 million copies.

The album’s iconic cover, which features the four band members walking across a zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios, has become one of the most famous and imitated images in the history of popular music.

“As far as rock music swan songs go, this might be the best there’s ever been.” – Billboard
