Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr Celebrate 10th Anniversary Of The Beatles LOVE

On Thursday, July 14, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the last two surviving members of the Beatles, came together for an evening of peace, love and musical bliss as they celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil. 

Following its creative EVOLution, which introduced vibrant new acts, music, technology, video, choreography and more, the show proudly performed to an energetic crowd with a full standing ovation at the conclusion of the anniversary performance. The house was packed with Beatles fans, Cirque du Soleil enthusiasts and celebrity friends—all of whom paid homage to the spectacular show.

Held exclusively at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the celebration opened with a star-studded red carpet featuring special appearances by McCartney and Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon, wife of John Lennon.
Additional red carpet appearances included producer and actor Ron Howard, guitarist Joe Walsh, producer Giles Martin, and many other celebrities.

The show's creative EVOLution culminated in the July 14 performance, bringing a splash of color to the Las Vegas Strip as the cast of 70 world-class artists grooved their way across the stage. The new additions to the show include advanced projection technology, new acrobatic acts, a remixed soundtrack with a new song ("Twist and Shout"), colorful costumes, brand new speakers and state-of-the-art video panels featuring The Beatles' images — bringing renewed life to the show that has already won the hearts of music and theater fans worldwide.
LOVE, a Cirque du Soleil creation and co-production with Apple Corps Ltd., celebrates the musical legacy of the Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas. LOVE marks the first time that The Beatles' company, Apple Corps Ltd., agreed to a major theatrical partnership.  The project was born out of a personal friendship and mutual admiration between the late George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Lalibert√©. The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil opened to rave reviews on June 30, 2006.  LOVE is the recipient of three GRAMMY Awards.
