Cast announced for tour of Let It Be: A Celebration Of The Music Of The Beatles

Let It Be: A Celebration Of The Music Of The Beatles is back with a series of new tour dates. This year marks 50 years since The Beatles took those infamous steps across the pedestrian crossing outside EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London, which went on to become one of the most famous album covers of all time.

The acclaimed concert, which features an Let It Be Part II reunion concert, proved such a hit with audiences and critics alike when it was premiered last year and a sell out European Tour, that it is now returning for a new UK Tour through Spring 2019.

The cast will comprise Emanuele Angeletti (Paul McCartney); John Brosnan (George Harrison); and Ben Cullingworth (Ringo Starr) all resuming their respective roles from the previous tour. Richard Jordan as John Lennon completes the Fab Four line-up. The band will be joined on stage throughout the tour by musical director Michael Bramwell on keyboards.

Emanuele Angeletti (Paul McCartney) was part of the original cast to open Let It Be in London’s West End in 2012. He has played Paul McCartney in various productions for 17 years. After playing guitar right-handed, he then taught himself to play left-handed just like Paul McCartney. Manny is from Civita Castellana, near Rome, and is still based in Italy. He also starred in the lead role of Macca – The Concert in 2017 and 2018.

John Brosnan (George Harrison) is also part of the original cast who opened Let It Be in the West End (2012) and on New York’s Broadway (2013), which he classes as real highlights. The Irish/Australian is now London based. John has performed Beatles’ music with major symphony orchestras across the world.
