A smash hit West End show which celebrates the music of the Beatles is coming to Manchester next week.

The cast of ''Let It Be'' will arrive at the Manchester Opera House for eight performances from October 22 - 27.

The popular theatre show will not only include the incredible back catalogue of Beatles songs, but it will also highlight some of John, Paul George and Ringo's solo material.

In a twist from the original show, the second half of this performance imagines what might have happened if the band reunited for one night only, ten years after they went their separate ways. It's the ultimate concert that never was and is set on John Lennon's Birthday, October 9, 1980.

Audiences are invited to capture the performance by taking photographs and video throughout. They're also encouraged to share their footage on social media, using the hashtag #LetItBeLive.

Let It Be: A Celebration of The Music Of The Beatles, is fronted by a cast of talented musicians who've already performed the show on some of the biggest stages in the world, including Broadway.
