'She Loves You', 'I Want To Hold Your Hand', 'A Hard Days Night', and 'Help!' are some of the songs featured in the opening part of the show.

Then it's on to the progressive period of the Beatles career ('65-'67), which includes songs such as 'Drive My Car', 'Paperback Writer', 'Day Tripper' and 'Eleanor Rigby'.

After another costume change the psychedelic section begins with 'Sgt. Peppers', 'Strawberry Fields', 'Penny Lane', 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' and 'Magical Mystery Tour' amongst others.

Songs from 'The White Album', 'Abbey Road', and 'Let It Be' together with later classic singles including 'Lady Madonna', 'Hey Jude' and 'Get Back' take the show to it's end.

The Newcastle Beatles dress in stage costumes to represent the different periods of The Beatles career including the 'Mop Top' years (grey suits), and the 1967 'summer of Love' (Sgt. Pepper suits). The band also uses authentic Guitars, drums and Amplifiers to add to the atmosphere and re-capture the sights and sounds of the Fab Four.
