The White Album Concert

The White Album Concert

It’s one of the most successful Beatles events ever staged in Australia. Following two sold-out tours, in 2009 and 2014, 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 special 2018 tour to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ White Album.

Chris, Phil, Josh and Tim will perform the White Album from start to finish – with a few surprises along the way – playing at some of Australia’s finest venues.  They are backed by a 17-piece rock orchestra, led by musical director Rex Goh, with guitars, strings, horns and two drummers.

Released on November 22, 1968, The Beatles’ self-titled ninth studio album became known as the White Album due to its distinctive plain white cover. It spent 16 weeks at number one in Australia. The White Album – which followed The Beatles’ venture to India and the death of their manager, Brian Epstein – is one of the 10 greatest albums of all time, according to Rolling Stone. The magazine’s founder and publisher, Jann Wenner, called it “the history and synthesis of Western music”.
