Live music production & promotion company, CCEntertainment’s concert ‘A Day in the Life’, celebrates the Beatles’ music from 1967-1970. Previously referred to what was known as the Beatles’ dark years, many people see the music of the phase as the beginning of change in the style of music that the band was creating.
“It is the period that we believe was the Beatles’ most creative and exciting musically compared to to their earlier work”, say CCEntertainment director, Martin Contempree. “They were in many ways at the peak of their individual and collective powers.”. As chronicled by the ‘Red Album’, this period delivered a phenomenal and diverse range of hit song such as Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Hey Jude, Revolution, Back in the U.S.S.R., Here Comes the Sun, Come Together, Something, Let It Be and The Long and Winding Road.
Recently, CCEntertainment announced ‘A Day In The Life’ – a Beatles retrospective 1967-1970 at The Enmore Theatre on Friday May 28, 2010. For CCEntertainment, this marks its second production at one of Sydney’s most historic live venues, the Enmore Theatre. Their first concert at the Enmore was their “Whole Lotta Love” show, celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin, and having been there myself on that memorable night, I can honestly say that the band blew the roof off the venue. So there is an expectation of the show later this month, “I’m definitely hoping for the same vibe as the Zeppelin concert”, say Contempree “– a contemporary celebration of the words and music of one of the greatest bands of all time that sees people of all ages coming together to enjoy the concert”.
