In the Concert Hall

Contemporary Music

21 singers and musicians, including Chris Cheney, Tim Rogers, Phil Jamieson and Josh Pyke perform The Beatles’ White Album in track order live on stage!

The White Album Concert!

The most successful Beatles event ever staged in Australia returns! After three sold-out tours in 2009, 2014 and 2018 Chris Cheney (The Living End), Phil Jamieson (Grinspoon), Tim Rogers (You Am I), and ARIA Award-winning solo artist Josh Pyke are reuniting for a 2023 tour in a nod to this very special album.

Few records echo down through the years like the White Album.

Coming after India, but before the split, the White Album was the sound of John, Paul, George and Ringo throwing everything they’d learned into their musical blender. This major work bursts with variety, creativity, experimentation, and the genius of The Beatles during one of their most intense, fertile periods. One of the 10 greatest albums of all time according to Rolling Stone it’s 30 songs veer from the populist stomp of Back in the U.S.S.R and the mind-bending Happiness is a Warm Gun to the melodious sorrow of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, the ska pop fun of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, and the hard rock prototype Helter Skelter.

Chris, Josh, Phil & Tim are backed by a 17-piece rock orchestra including guitars, strings, horns and two drummers with musical direction by Rex Goh.

The White Album songs will be performed in track order, starting with Back in the USSR and closing with Good Night. And for those in the know – yes, that includes Revolution 9.

Presented by The Beatles Live
