In October 2019 The Beatles opus Abbey Road returned to #1 around the world, 50 years after its release, cementing its place as arguably the greatest album of all time.
In August 2019, in celebration of its 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), brought 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.
The reaction was momentous: sold-out shows, rapturous reviews and standing ovations every night.
To meet with the incredible demand and to celebrate the album returning to #1, the band are heading back out on the road for a final run of shows.
Joining ARC live on stage will be special guests Linda Bull (The Black Sorrows, Vika and Linda Bull), Ash Naylor (Paul Kelly, Even and Rockwiz) and James Fleming (Eagle and the Worm, Bob Evans).
“The musos on stage do something The Beatles never managed: play the Abbey Road album (and more) authentically, brilliantly, and with obvious respect and love” – Tone Deaf
