Sir Paul McCartney famously called Abbey Road studios 'the monastery' and now a stage show is set to recreate the band's recording sessions at the venue where they created some of their best-known songs.

Abbey Road was more than just a studio to the Beatles, who immortalised it into music folklore with their 1969 album named after it, along with the famous cover on the zebra crossing outside.

Now Beatles' fans can travel back in time to the 1960s when Paul, John, Ringo and George created hit after hit at the iconic London site.

The Sessions, at the Royal Albert Hall, is overseen by the Beatles' original recording engineer Geoff Emerick.

It is a live re-staging that promises to take the audience 'on a journey from early Liverpool to swinging London and the phenomenon of Beatlemania'.

The original Abbey Road studio has been restored to provide an immersive experience with 'all instrumentation, arrangements and vocals identical to the original recordings'.

The show is set to feature all of the band's most famous songs including 'All You Need Is Love' and 'Please Please Me'.

After its run in the UK the production will be taken around Europe as well as Japan and Korea.
