New: Beatles Release Video from Las Vegas “Love” Show on 10th Anniversary– “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”


The Beatles have released a video from their Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas show “Love.” It’s the 10th anniversary of the spectactular show, and the “Love” album has just been made available on Spotify.

The track is George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” If you think you’ve never heard this before, that’s because you haven’t. The version only exists in the “Love” show. The late George Martin and Giles Martin added the strings from Beatles leftovers in the studio, with George Harrison’s permission.

I went to the opening of “Love” and the 1st year anniversary, and I’ve been back a couple of times over the years. It’s the best show in Las Vegas. Happy anniversary to the whole gang!
