The Beatles, the legendary British boy band composed of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, changed the music industry in 1960 and have since become one of the most influential acts of rock and roll. In the new trailer for Ron Howard’s documentary “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week — The Touring Years,” the four members are seen at the height of Beattlemania, grateful – yet overwhelmed with all their success.
“We can’t go on forever as four clean little mop-tops playing ‘She Loves You,’” says Ringo in the clip.
The trailer shows the band surrounded by crazed fans, performing, being interviewed and so much more.
“There is no switching off, you’re on 24 hours a day,” says McCartney. “We were kids. We were all pretty scared… We all started to get pretty fed up. We were looking for somewhere new to go.”
The doc features live concert footage from 1962 – 1966 and a fully restored, remastered, 30-minute performance by the band at Shea Stadium on August 15, 1965. McCartney and Starr helped with the film’s production, along with Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono.
“The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years” arrives in theaters on September 15 and Hulu on September 17.
