Remeet the Beatles

Shea concert footage to follow documentary


Ron Howard's new documentary, "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week—The Touring Years," will hit theaters this week with a surprise encore: a half-hour of rare footage from the band's 1965 concert at Shea Stadium in New York.

The bonus performance—in a 5.1 surround sound mix overseen by Apple Records—will be screened following the film's premiere in 80 theaters nationwide on September 15.

An estimated 50 theaters will then showcase "Eight Days a Week" and the Shea Stadium segment for one week only, beginning September 16.

That'll be your only chance to see and hear the remastered concert footage, according to Billboard. It won't be available when the documentary starts streaming September 17 on Hulu.

It also won't be part of the DVD and Blu-Ray packages that will be released down the long and winding road. The exact date has yet to be announced.
