As celebrations continue marking the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ American debut, Cunard Line will help commemorate the group’s first crossing of the Atlantic with The Beatles Experience, a live musical tribute.
The premiere tribute band and Queen Mary 2 will come together during one of the ship’s transatlantic crossings, departing from New York on Oct. 28.
“We are thrilled to welcome The Beatles Experience on board our flagship, Queen Mary 2,” said David Dingle, CEO for Cunard Line. “The Beatles are the most iconic and popular rock band in history, as well as one of the U.K.’s most famous exports. So it is only fitting that we would bring a taste of Beatlemania to travelers enjoying one of our most iconic and popular voyages — a Cunard transatlantic crossing.”
Passengers on board the eight-day October sailing will have the exclusive opportunity to enjoy a concert by The Beatles Experience in the Royal Court Theatre. Audiences will also be treated to Q&A’s during the voyage.
The Beatles Experience will also perform on Queen Mary 2’s April 2 Hong Kong to Dubai sailing, Queen Victoria’s April 1 San Francisco to Fort Lauderdale sailing and Queen Elizabeth’s March 29 Hong Kong to Dubai sailing.
