Love

The first official Beatles stage show, "Love", opens tonight at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. Performed by the Canadian circus troupe Cirque du Soleil, the show features a soundtrack of Beatles songs remixed by Sir George Martin and his son Giles. Acrobats, dancers, skaters and trampoline artists will bring to life characters such as Sgt Pepper, Lady Madonna and Mr Kite.
Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison are expected to attend tonight's premiere, along with George Martin, Cynthia Lennon, John Lennon's sons Julian and Sean, and George Harrison's son Dhani.
