Beatles back at the Royal Variety Performance

Tuesday December 6 it's again time to rattle some jewellery at this year's Royal Variety Performance in London. The Beatles themselves only appeared once at this event, and that was back in 1963. Now it's an ensemble from Cirque du Soleil who are going to entertain the audience with an excerpt from their Beatles show "Love" at the Hammersmith Apollo.

The Beatles were invited back several times, but felt that they had done their bit and never came back to perform at the annual event. However, in 1986 Paul McCartney returned to the line-up, as he perfomed "Only Love Remains" from his then current album, "Press To Play". The Royal Variety Performance is usually filmed, and excerpts shown on TV in Great Britain and elsewhere.
