The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966,” according to the official synopsis.

The description also notes that the project was completed with full cooperation from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.

“The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” will see a theatrical release on Sept. 16 and then be released exclusively on streaming service Hulu the following day.
