Boy, was I wrong.

From Love Me Do to Let It Be, the band presented the entire Beatle story, taking in four costume changes, and had the audience singing along to the songs that will be around forever.
Because it was John Lennon's birthday, the Lennon character came on stage wearing a birthday badge and there was a touching moment when the audience joined in to sing happy birthday to the spirit of Lennon. And what a varied audience it was - there were young children with their parents and their grandparents. And we were all rocking to the Magic of the Beatles and for that time that the guys were on stage it was as if we were watching The Beatles themselves and songs from the latter Beatle period, which were never performed live, were expertly recreated.

And happy birthday, John.
