Rock Hall Extends Beatles Exhibition, Announces 2023 Nominees

Cleveland’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has extended “The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be” exhibit through the end of the year. And, in case you missed it, the Rock Hall recently announced the nominees for its Class of 2023.

Described as the “immersive complement” to Peter Jackson’s 2021 docuseries The Beatles: Get Back, the 2,000-square-foot exhibit transports visitors back to January 1969 and puts them in the studio during legendary rehearsal sessions and on the Apple Corps rooftop for the band’s iconic live performance.

The exhibit comprises three screening rooms featuring an exclusive selection of video footage from Twickenham, Apple Studios, and the Apple Corps rooftop in addition to original instruments, clothing, and handwritten lyrics used by The Beatles and seen in the film.

To celebrate the extended run, the Rock Hall is planning a series of summer events, including Beatles Fridays, weekend screenings of The Beatles’ rooftop concert, interactive and educational programs, photo opportunities, live music, and more.

“The Beatles have had a massive, global impact across generations,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “We have already welcomed a diverse mix of over half a million fans from around the world to experience this exhibit. We remain grateful for the support of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, the estates of John Lennon and George Harrison, Apple Corps Ltd., and Peter Jackson for helping us tell this important story, and look forward to welcoming fans all year.” The exhibit opened in March 2022.
