Local musicians are being invited to participate in the 50th anniversary of the arrival of one of music’s most iconic albums next Thursday (September 26th)
The Sheffield Beatles Project are celebrating the release of the iconic Abbey Road with a special ‘open mic’ night at the city’s Triple Point Brewery (formerly Sentinel Brewing).
The ‘Come Together’ event includes a talk by city-based Beatles historian Steve Bush who will be discussing the band’s shows in the city – including their legendary performance at the Azena Ballroom in Gleadless.
Shoreham Street’s Triple Point will also be brewing their own ‘Let It Be’ beer especially to mark the anniversary and the soundtrack to the night will be one hundred per cent Beatles.
Rob Taylor from the Sheffield Beatles Project said: “We’re really keen to attract people that remember the day Abbey Road was released in Sheffield. What did they think to it? Where did they buy it from? Did they see the Beatles perform in Sheffield? We really want to hear their story and celebrate a massive milestone in music history.”
The original album was released on 26th September 1969 – 50 years to day of the anniversary event.
‘Come Together’ is free and starts at 6pm. It will be helping promote the eagerly awaited return of the Sheffield Beatles Project to the 02 Academy in Sheffield.
The 30 piece band and orchestra made up of some of Sheffield’s finest musicians will be performing ‘Abbey Road and ‘Let It Be in full on Saturday, December 14th.
Tickets for the event are just £16.50 (plus fees), available from https://www.facebook.com/thesheffieldbeatlesproject/
