It won't be long until Let It Be, the popular West End and Broadway production celebrating the music of the Beatles, will be back in Vancouver with a new chapter of history.

The show, which premiered in 2012 in London's West End and in 2013 on Broadway, will head back out on tour beginning in October, with a stop at Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Nov. 8.

The original show relived popular moments from the band's history, from their debut in Liverpool's Cavern Club, to their Ed Sullivan performance, and through to Abbey Road. Songs performed during the spectacle include Hard Day's Night, Day Tripper, and countless other classics.

The revamped show coming to town in November will include much of the original production, but will also explore an alternative history in which the Beatles had reunited on John Lennon's 40th birthday in 1980, a decade after their breakup.

Tickets for Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of the Beatles are on sale now.
