In 1968 The Beatles released one of the most diverse and compelling albums of all time.
Recorded in the months after The Beatles returned disillusioned from India, their manager dead, their break up in sight, and wracked with internal tensions, the double White Album was immediately hailed as one of the most extraordinary, powerful albums in the history of music: a work of unparalleled influence and brilliance.
The White Album ranged from rock ‘n’ roll, soul, blues, country, folk and vaudeville to reggae, and was a spiritual, political and personal revelation that still reverberates today. This provocative major work contains 30 songs from the world’s greatest band at the intense peak of their creative journey including Revolution, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Helter Skelter, Julia, Dear Prudence, Blackbird, While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Back in the USSR.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this extraordinary album four of Australia’s most respected and popular rock performers backed by a 17 piece band made up of the country’s finest musicians will perform The White Album song for song, in track order. Join Chris Cheney, Phil Jamieson, Josh Pyke and Tim Rogers for an unforgettable evening of music.
