Apple Corp Ltd. and Cirque du Soleil have paired to present All Together Now—a documentary about The Beatles-based LOVE show—in DVD form on October 21. According to a press release, "All Together Now faithfully recounts how the LOVE project came into being, borne from the personal friendship between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte. George saw how the twin talents of The Beatles' music and the artistry of Cirque du Soleil's artistry and could be fused into something new and totally original."
Adrian Wills, the doc's director, filmed throughout London, Montreal and Las Vegas, capturing interviews with Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and more. Here's a breakdown of the DVD version, which will be available through Best Buy and the LOVE Boutique at the Mirage in Las Vegas:
"All Together Now" documentary (84:00)
"Changing The Music" (22:00): An in-depth look at the decision to rework and remix the Beatles music for the show
