So its on! The McKinley High Glee Club will perform a tribute to the Fab Four, and the 31-second clip provides the first look at the Gleeksters in action.
In fact, the first two episodes will be devoted to John, George, Paul and Ringo. The first titled “Love, Love, Love” will mark the season premiere on Thursday, Sept. 26. That will be followed by “Tina in the Sky with Diamonds.”
The two episodes will feature 14 Beatles songs that are pretty representative of their repertoire from the early ’60s, to classic songs from their Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club album, considered one of the best rock ‘n roll records ever made.
Among the Beatles classics on the set list are “Yesterday,” “Drive My Car,” “Got to Get You Into My Life,” “Get Back,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Hey Jude,” and “Let It Be.”
Fox released the 32-second promo clip today (Sept. 6). It features most of the regular cast, including Lea Michelle, Jane Lynch, as the new principal, Darren Criss, Chris Colfer and Naya Rivera.
They also put on a retrospective of the clothes the Beatles made famous, from Nehru jackets, to skinny black ties and the kaleidoscopic costumes from their psychedelic era.
Demi Lovato is also on board to make a guest appearance, although she doesn’t appear in the promo. That will probably come later.
It’s amazing that the show was able to get the rights to the songs, but they’re doing more than just performing them. Columbia Records will release a soundtrack DVD of the Glee cast performing Beatles songs two days before the premiere airs, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
