we saw Love at the beginning of July. i can't recommend it highly enough. the show was originally George Harrison's idea. he loved Cirque du Soleil and thought it would be grand to combine the performers with the Beatles music.

it is beautifully spectacular from start to finish. 90 minutes of extraordinary music shared with an audience of 2,000 with six speakers built into every headrest. at the same time you're watching performers, aerial acrobatics, trampolines and blurs of majestic, psychedelic colors.

they spent $130 million on the show with 2/3 of that going to custom build the theatre.

it is magical, heartbreaking, and haunting...the entire time you sit there wide-eyed with your mouth wide open. nostalgia weighs heavy as you're transported back to the 60s. it’ll make you smile and at times fill your eyes with tears because the Beatles are alive and so present. it also reminds you of lost innocence and the loss John and George.

bravo to george martin and son.

it stays with you. expensive but worth every penny.
OK, so we are trying to plan a trip to see this in August. Anyone have any recommendations on seating, and/or if its worth the money to be closer up? Tix are expensive, so we are trying to get all information up front so we can decide what to do & where to sit. Thanks!

I'm going on the 28th, I can't wait!

When I ordered my tix, the guy I spoke to had seen the show more times than I could remember and he said he's sat in nearly every area and price range and he felt every seat was good no matter where it was. We chose the first row of the first raised section. He thought the seats we chose were some of the better ones. Yay!

I think listening to this on a big stereo system makes a difference! I've only heard this on my computer and in the car.

Btw... Glass Onion...Eleanor Rigby transition =
