Channel 4 have revealed details on the last ever episode of the music show.
Abbey Road’s most famous performers back in the sixties were The Beatles.
“Our superb team were honoured to work with Channel 4 and bring these brilliant musical artists to the television screen. While I’m sad to see the series end, I’m sure a new group of guardians will keep our recordings of the series safe for future generations. These recordings are truly a piece of music history.” – Michael Gleason, producer of Live from Abbey Road
Live from Abbey Road, the much-loved music performance series which has broadcast on Channel 4 since January 2007, will end its long run on the channel with a final one-hour episode of classic sessions from the series.
The award-winning production, filmed entirely at Abbey Road Studios without an audience or a presenter, had a total of one hundred episodes on Channel 4 over the twelve-year period. The series featured over one hundred thirty five world-class musical artists, performing songs old and new.
The final show includes iconic performances from Muse, Ed Sheeran, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mary J. Blige, Paul Simon, Sheryl Crow, Herbie Hancock and Corinne Bailey Rae, Florence and The Machine, LeAnn Rimes, Elbow and Michael Bublé
The Abbey Road Studios first opened in November 1931 by the Gramophone Company which later became the more famous EMI Music. It was all change in 2013 when Virgin Records purchased the site after a period of uncertainty over its future.
Artists to record there over the years range from The Beatles, Adam Ant, The Pet Shop Boys, The Spice Girls to Noele Gordon, Peter Ustinov, Mrs Mills and several film scores have also been produced at the site in London.
“It is hard to imagine a more fitting end to this fabulous series. We’ve loved having the shows on Channel 4 and hope our viewers have enjoyed the unique look and sound of these wonderful artists. Thank you to the artists and their record labels for their support over the years.” – Jonny Rothery, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor for Formats, Features and Music
