|On 17 August 1960, five young lads from Liverpool made their first official public appearance as “The Beatles” – live on stage at the Indra in Hamburg. In the following two years, they would lay the foundations for their global career in the live clubs of St. Pauli, Hamburg’s infamous red-light district at the time. This summer, Hamburg will be celebrating the Beatles’ 60th anniversary with a dedicated event:
the grand “Stream & Shout” show on 17 August 2020. The event will be hosted by Stefanie Hempel, Hamburg’s Beatles expert and our Come Together Festival host, who will be joined by friends from the music scene, celebrity guests as well as contemporary witnesses. Together, they will be presenting a unique rock’n’roll programme at the original venue, the Indra, to be enjoyed via live stream at www.stream-shout.hamburg.
The concert includes a recreated original Beatles set from August 1960 as well as some of the Beatles’ greatest hits and legendary songs. Performing fellow musicians at the Indra will include the Kaiser Quartett, Cäthe, Bernd Begemann, Jessy Martens, Billy King, Jimmy Cornett, and Michèl von Wussow.
Beatles fans can look forward to appearances of contemporary witnesses, among them Rosi Sheridan and Günter Zint as well as a number of surprise guests. What is more, companions and friends of the Beatles from all over the world will be joining the event digitally.
The anniversary show is a cooperation of Hamburg Marketing GmbH and Hamburg Tourismus GmbH with Hempel’s Beatles Tour, hamburg.de and SAM Medien – kindly supported by the Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Media, fritz-kola, and the BIMM Institute Hamburg.
