Liverpool is a very popular city known by FC Liverpool and Everton. Cold. Liverpool is charming and pleasant. But more than that, it is the city where "The Beatles" were born. 1960 was the year when four friends decided to become a band. At that time it was just a dream. They didn't know what was about to come. Not only their lives would be changed by those of the world

From that day, nothing would be the same anymore. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr met in Liverpool when they were just young boys in their teens. They sang "She loves me" and the rest we all know.

Two movies, one in black and white, many polemics- especially words said by Lennon - twelve studios albums over twenty-five weeks repeatedly. Musically they were - and are - what the world has seen as the greatest.

Artistically and humanly

"Eight Days a Week" the newest film / Documentary about the band, directed by Ron Howard, debuted last September with information and images previously unpublished. It covers the band and its trajectory between the years of 1962 to 1966. It shows their beginning, their maturing and how Sir George Martin helped the magic to happen. From the tidy-haired boys who maddened girls on stage to the family men who became and changed the world of music- the album "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band" is considered a historical evolution in the progress of music and is one of the best-selling album of all times.

In an era of Elvis Presley, no one could explain the Beatlemania phenomenon. From the good boy Paul to the controversial rebel Lennon, passing by the Harrison sensitive spiritual to the playful Ringo, "The Beatles" have changed the lives of thousands of people around the world with their lyrics.The documentary shows statements by people like Hollywood actress Whoopi Goldberg, and her simple childhood in New York, USA.

The black girl who admired them on TV and made her believe that everyone can be equal, so she ays in the movie.T hey were the voice of all kinds of people.


In 1963, for the first time, the famous baseball stadium in New York, Shea Stadium, hosted a show so that they could fit in as many fans as possible, yet thousands would be left out.

Over five thousand people were there inside. That is not only counted in the documentary but also, shown. For music and the band lovers, it's exciting as every scene in the show makes it look like you're there. Well documented and edited, the documentary also tells of the classic moments, such as Lennon stating that the band was more famous than Jesus Christ, as well as the four refusing to perform if the audience were not mixed in Florida, USA. They changed the world vision of every citizen. There, during the show, they were all equal because we are all equal. As Ringo Starr said in the film the band wanted to play to everyone.

The eyes of a man

Under the watchful eye of newspaperman Larry Kane, who documented the band's tour in 1964, the boys arrived in the USA in a time of tension over the Vietnam War and overcame the historic moment of Kennedy's death It shows, as well, inner emotional difficulties of the boys who had to face the routine and manage their lives.


More than musical change, they were humanitarian changers. Predestined, perhaps (or sure enough), the four boys from Liverpool did not meet by chance. The boys who start playing at Cavern Club, even after 50 years, are still current. The world needed them and we nowadays, need a film like "Eight Days a Week - Touring YearsY". From the kid on the streets to the Queen, everyone is touched by "The Beatles" songs. And probably it will always be.

"Eight Day as Week - Touring years" deserves to be seen. It deserves to be saved. Just like "The Beatles".
