A companion to Ron Howard’s highly anticipated documentary feature film “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years” about the band’s early years, the album, titled “The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl,” will be released worldwide on CD and for digital download and streaming on September 9, followed by a 180-gram gatefold vinyl LP on November 18.

The album will also comprise a 24-page booklet with an essay by noted music journalist David Fricke, with cover art featuring a sunny photo taken on August 22, 1964 by The Beatles’ then-US tour manager, Bob Bonis, as John, Paul, George and Ringo boarded a chartered flight from Seattle Tacoma Airport to Vancouver, BC for their first concert in Canada.

Following a world premiere event in London on September 15, the film will roll out theatrically worldwide with release dates set in the UK, France and Germany (September 15); the US, Australia and New Zealand (September 16); and Japan (September 22).
