Details of The Beatles Abbey Road and the Ticket Luck value
The Beatles Abbey Road is a concert being brought to the stage by Classic Albums Live. The company from Toronto is known for organizing shows that pay homage to the classic rock era and its various artists. It began in 2003 by the founder, Craig Martin who previously ran a cabaret show and had written music for film and television. Each distinct series of concerts are put together to tribute one album at a time. This time around, they have chosen the Beatles' most influential work, "Abbey Road". This was the last album that the band recorded together and is often considered their greatest work. Thus, the Classic Albums Live crew has prepared a show that would hopefully do it justice.

This is the record that consists of the hits of the later part of their career-"Come Together", "Here Comes the Sun", and "Oh! Darling" among others. The album, like all their works before was a commercial success. But although most today recognize it as their finest work, reviews at the time were not as forgiving. On its release, it was criticized for its production, lack of authenticity and incompetent digital effects. Others were apprehensive of this work because it was released when tensions among the members-Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr-were at their highest. Regardless, "Abbey Road" still remains their top selling record.
The album cover for Abbey Road is also one of their most famous. It consists of the band walking across a zebra crossing right outside of the "EMI Studios" which incidentally is located on Abbey Road. The photographer was Iain Macmillan, and he was famously only given 10 minutes for this photo shoot because the traffic was not allowed to be withheld for longer than that. Macmillan stood atop a ladder as he snapped the photo. Also in the picture is a Volkswagen Beetle with the number plate bearing "LMW 281F". This number in itself became a phenomenon, with fans getting it tattooed on their bodies or buying the same number for really high prices for their cars. The car itself was auctioned off for 2530 pounds in 1986. Today, it resides in a German museum. Also in the picture is a man unaware that he was being photographed at the time. This too became a sensation, with the man, Paul Cole becoming a minor celebrity. The zebra crossing itself has become amongst the most famous tourist spots. It is monitored by a webcam so people from all over can see who crosses it at any time of the day.
For several years, people stayed obsessed over the cover photo alone because it was believed that it contained a hidden message or symbolic importance. There was a cult who believed that McCartney had actually died and had been replaced by a doppelganger. They believed that the photo in fact symbolized his funeral. John Lennon is seen dressed in all white and seems to be leading the procession, hence representing a heavenly figure. Following him is Ringo Starr, dressed like a priest. McCartney is barefoot in the picture, symbolizing a corpse, and George Harrison is dressed in denim, representing a grave digger. Although the Beatles had denied this idea, there are some who still believe it to be the case.
The music of this album was an attempt by McCartney to get the band back to how they used to be. They were originally set to release an album called "Get Back", but the recording sessions ended up being disastrous. Conflicts within the band were especially high after the "White Album". Thus George Martin, the record producer stepped ahead and proposed that the album be recorded his way. Moreover, everyone on their team had the impending realization that this was indeed going to be the band's last work together, thus they decided to set their differences aside and end on a high. This proved to be true for although "Let it Be" was their last released album, this was the final work on which they worked together.
Thus, the Classic Albums Live band needs to put on a show that would be adequately worthy of the huge legacy that this record has left behind. The Beatles, as an evergreen band continue to have fans of all ages even today who will be flocking in with cheap The Beatles Abbey Road tickets, hoping for a show that would remind them why they love the band.
