The Analogues will play Revolver, the acclaimed album of The Beatles from 1966, five times in its entirety at AFAS Live in Amsterdam from 9 to 11 October. For this occasion, the concert hall will be converted into a Club Revolver that meets all RIVM guidelines. Normally there can be 6000 people in this hall, now that‘s about 1150 per performance.
In recent years The Analogues have toured at home and abroad with their interpretation of studio albums by The Beatles. The band performed integral performances of albums The Fab Four recorded, but never performed live: Magical Mystery Tour (1967), Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), The Beatles (The White Album) (1968) and Abbey Road (1969). Revolver is now being added.
Officially, this year‘s acclaimed band would leave the Beatles-period behind for the time being to indulge in recording their own record. But because of the corona-measures this has been postponed. “We are now back in the rehearsal room on a daily basis. Sounds damn good already, even if we say so ourselves” says bass player Bart van Poppel.
Revolver is considered one of the most influential and groundbreaking albums in the history of pop music. It is number three on the Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and is regarded by many critics as one of the best Beatle records. The album with classics such as Taxman, For No One, Tomorrow Never Knows and Eleanor Rigby will, as usual, be played as exactly as the original.
Ticket sales for these concerts will start next Friday September 11th at 10.00 hrs.
