Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Extends Groundbreaking Beatles Exhibition
By popular demand, the immersive complement to Peter Jackson’s “The Beatles: Get Back” docuseries will remain on display throughout 2023
By popular demand, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has extended one of its most celebrated featured exhibits – The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be – giving even more fans the opportunity to visit it throughout 2023. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is the only place in the world where fans experience one of the most iconic moments of the twentieth century as they step inside The Beatles’ January 1969 Let It Be rehearsals, studio sessions, and legendary Apple Corps rooftop concert, the band’s final live performance. Opened in March 2022, this featured exhibition is an immersive complement to Peter Jackson’s docuseries, “The Beatles: Get Back.”
Like Jackson’s “Get Back” docuseries, the exhibit shows how The Beatles composed and recorded many of their iconic songs from scratch. The exhibit’s three screening rooms feature an exclusive selection of video footage from each location from the docuseries: Twickenham, Apple Studios, and the Apple Corps rooftop. The footage from the recording sessions and conversations turns the clock back to 1969, showing the intimacy, joyousness, and humor as The Beatles write and record songs for Let It Be and some songs featured on Abbey Road and future solo albums.
Fans experience The Beatles’ creative journey through the exhibit’s original instruments, clothing, and handwritten lyrics used by The Beatles and seen in the film.
“The Beatles have had a massive, global impact across generations. We have already welcomed a diverse mix of over half a million fans from around the world to experience this exhibit,” said Greg Harris, President & CEO, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “We remain grateful for the support of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, the estates of John Lennon and George Harrison, Apple Corps Ltd., and Peter Jackson for helping us tell this important story, and look forward to welcoming fans all year.”
Fans can reserve tickets to visit the Museum and experience the exhibit in advance at rockhall.com.
To build on the excitement of this extended run, this summer fans can enjoy Beatles Fridays, exclusive screenings of The Beatles’ rooftop concert every weekend, interactive and educational programs, unique photo opportunities, live music, and other special events to be announced.
