In October 2019 The Beatles opus Abbey Road returned to #1 around the world, 50 years after its release, cementing its place as arguably the greatest album of all time.
In August 2019, in celebration of its 50th anniversary, some of Australia's most respected musicians and members of iconic groups, collectively known as ARC " Kram (SPIDERBAIT), Mark Wilson (JET), Davey Lane (YOU AM I) and Darren Middleton (POWDERFINGER), brought The Beatles' most audacious creation to life on stage, performing Abbey Road in full, from start to finish, followed by a second set comprising of a selection of hits spanning the breadth of The Beatles' career and catalogue.
The reaction was momentous: sold-out shows, rapturous reviews and standing ovations every night.
To meet with the incredible demand and to celebrate the album returning to #1, the band are heading back out on the road for a final run of shows.
Joining ARC live on stage will be special guests Linda Bull (The Black Sorrows, Vika and Linda Bull), Ash Naylor (Paul Kelly, Even and Rockwiz) and James Fleming (Eagle and the Worm, Bob Evans).
Abbey Road - The Beatles' swansong and their crowning achievement as a recording group - is a stately, majestic, playful yet fiercely rocking masterpiece of pop music, regarded as one of the greatest records of all time.
Released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records, Abbey Road was an immediate commercial success reaching #1 in the UK and US. Over time, the album became viewed as among The Beatles' best and many critics have ranked it as one of the greatest albums of all time.
The masterpiece spent 81 weeks on the UK albums chart, 12 weeks at #1 on the Billboard chart and was certified 12-times platinum by the RIAA in 2001, selling in excess of 31 million copies.
The album's iconic cover, which features the four band members walking across a zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios, has become one of the most famous and imitated images in the history of popular music.
