Jerry Nadal, senior vice president of Cirque's resident shows, stated to USA Today: 'You can see the staying power of the Beatles. For the first year or two, we got a lot of hardcore Beatles fans who had never seen a Cirque show. They said, 'Wow, that's Cirque? I want to see another one.' 'Love' which features a mash-up of over 130 song samples in 26 tracks, premiered in Vegas on 30 June 2006.

The Beatles entourage had last gathered together in 2009 in Los Angeles for the launch of 'The Beatles: Rock Band' and their re-mastered Beatles catalog.

U2 want to release a 'Rock Band' video game like their idols The Beatles.

Bass player Adam Clayton has revealed he and his bandmates - singer Bono, guitarist The Edge and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. - had talks with the makers of the hugely popular video game series last year but initial discussions broke down.

He said: "We definitely would like to be in there. But we felt some of the compromises weren't what we wanted. That could change. I love the idea that's where people are getting music and we'd love to be in that world. We'll figure something out."

The Concert For George Review


Excellent
In The Concert for George -- a musical tribute to the late George Harrison -- Eric Clapton remarks that Harrison, a longtime friend, would not have wanted this concert held for him. He was not one to have a fuss made over him. From a man deemed the "quiet Beatle" this seems appropriate.

I hope Harrison's friends and family don't mind if I challenge the man's opinions. The Concert for George is necessary, as it takes a good look at the human, familial side that does exist in rock and roll. It's the antithesis of another first-rate concert movie, The Band's The Last Waltz (1978), where you got the feeling the longtime bandmates couldn't wait to get the damn thing over and done with. Martin Scorsese filmed Robbie Robertson and company as if they were performing in separate halls. In the latter concert, there's a feeling that the performers need to be there, that they need the comfort of each other. The stage is crammed with musicians.
