The Beatles - Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years (2016)

Documentary, Music 1h 55m

The Beatles famously retired from touring after performing in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park in August, 1966, following the release of Revolver, the first step in the band’s move towards more experimental, studio-based music. Despite being the most documented band ever, director Ron Howard’s assemblage of archive footage, some of which has been previously unseen by audiences, interspersed with new interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and close associates of the band, still manages to feel as if it offers a fresh perspective. Possibly inspired by the scenes of rehearsal in the TV studio in Richard Lester’s A Hard Day’s Night (1964), it emphasises that at the heart of the cultural phenomenon were four young men who simply enjoyed making music.
