The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years is a 2016 documentary film directed by Ron Howard about The Beatles' career during their touring years from 1962 to 1966, from their performances at the Cavern Club in Liverpool to their final concert in San Francisco in 1966. The film was released theatrically on 15 September 2016 in the United Kingdom and 16 September in the United States, and started streaming on Hulu on 17 September 2016.

In the 1960s, the Beatles exploded on to the public scene, seemingly out of nowhere as the band's formative years of constant performing at home and in Hamburg, and Brian Epstein's grooming, finally paid off beyond their wildest dreams. Ron Howard isn't the first person I would have pictured directing a documentary about the Beatles, but "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years" is great in every way. It focuses on the period from 1963-1966, as the Fab Four traveled the globe. No surprise that they drew throngs of shrieking teenage girls everywhere that they went.

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week-The Touring Years. Abramorama Release Date: September 16, 2016. Summary: The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years documents the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become the extraordinary phenomenon, The Beatles. The first two-thirds is the usual documentary-style coverage of the Beatles's Touring Years: 1962 - 1966.

The band stormed Europe in 1963 and, in 1964, they conquered America. Their groundbreaking world tours changed global youth culture forever and, arguably, invented mass entertainment as we know it today. All the while, the group were composing and recording a series of extraordinarily successful singles and albums. However, the relentless pressure of such unprecedented fame (which in 1966 became uncontrollable turmoil) led to the decision to stop touring. In the ensuing years The Beatles were then free to focus on a series of albums that changed the face of recorded music

A compilation of found footage featuring music, interviews, and stories of The Beatles' 250 concerts from 1963 to 1966. Genre: Documentary, Music. Actor: Whoopi Goldberg, George Harrison, The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Larry Kane, Elvis Costello.

In The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years. Oscar-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) explores the history of The Beatles through the lens of the group’s concert performances, from their early days playing small clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg to their unprecedented world tours in packed stadiums around the globe, from New York to Melbourne to Tokyo. The first feature-length documentary authorized by The Beatles since the band’s breakup in 1970, Eight Days A Week features rare and never-before-seen archival footage of shows and interviews, plus new interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and numerous prominent observers.

The group’s fans today, of any age, are bound to welcome Eight Days a Week, in which Beatlemania’s mid-‘60s comet of joy and astonishment is thrillingly captured. One, The Beatles were hugely industrious during this period (apart from a brief lull in early 1966). Besides their extensive touring schedule and making movies, they were writing and recording songs at an astonishing clip, and the quality of that music is still blazingly evident today. The second point is that they survived the maelstrom, and especially the crucible of 1966, by being as tight and mutually supportive as four best friends could be.

The Beatles began touring Europe in late 1963, after an extraordinary arrival on the British scene in 1961 and ‘62. However, it was their much-heralded Ed Sullivan appearance on February 9, 1964 that caused The Beatles’ popularity to explode. By June, the band had commenced their first world tour, and continued on a relentless schedule for two subsequent years. By the time the band stopped touring in August of 1966, they had performed 166 concerts in 15 countries and 90 cities around the world. I just returned from the cinema in Pilsen. I saw Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years. Really amazing movie!!! Great!!!
