Just the name Abbey Road makes you think of another time. A time when music mattered. These days new music doesn't survive. It's gone by lunch. Abbey Road saw the Beatles let go. It was their swan song album. They wanted to make something that would last and end their legacy with grace and cool.

No other album picks up a full head of steam like Abbey Road. Despite their splitting up, the lads beckon us to "Come Together" right from the onset. And they crescendo and say goodbye with kiss of philosophy that not only stands the test of time, but tattoos itself onto our hearts: "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make".

When Classic Albums Live performs Abbey Road, we go deeper than just playing it note for note and cut for cut. We've had that part down for years. We go deep. We go into the album and fuse our DNA with it. There's a beauty that needs to accompany every performance of Abbey Road. I can say without reservation - that Classic Albums Live has found that beauty and takes the greatest pride in sharing it with everyone at the show.
