The Beatles Story are to celebrate the release of 'From Me to You' with a global video relay!
Beatles tribute bands from across the globe will join together to create a music video that will see the music of The Fab Four once again unite people all over the world and see them celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘From Me to You’.
The world’s greatest Beatles tribute bands will record their version of the song then pass the ‘baton’ on to the next country to who will continue the song with the help and support of local fans and media.
The final produced video will be unveiled to the world on April the 11th which also marks the release of 'From Me to You'.
This exciting global relay was officially launched at Liverpool’s world-famous Cavern club on March the 7th when house band The Cavern Club Beatles played a rousing version of ‘From Me to You’ in front of a packed house of Beatles fans from across the globe.
The music video relay forms part of the official events programme of ‘Liverpool Celebrates 50 Years Of The Beatles’. During 2012, the programme captured the imagination of visitors from across the world with a calendar of events to celebrate key milestone dates in the history of the world’s most famous band. This included setting a Guinness World Record on the 50th anniversary of the release of the band’s debut single, Love Me Do. A programme of events will continue throughout 2013 and 2014. Liverpool Celebrates 50 Years Of The Beatles is supported by VisitLiverpool, Official Tourist Board for Liverpool City Region.
The enduring legacy of The Beatles has created a network of remarkable tribute bands the world over but it is thought that the ‘From Me to You’ project is the first time that these global tribute bands will have joined forces to create a single video artefact spanning the continents.
‘From Me to You’ was co-written by Lennon and McCartney and was The Beatles first Number One hit in the UK. It was written while the group was on a coach on tour with Helen Shapiro. The title itself was inspired by the letters page in the NME called ‘From You to Us.
