The Beatles

I can honestly say I didn’t see this coming. The first footage of The Beatles: Rock Band has been revealed to the world, but at a place you wouldnt expect it to. Where you’d think it’d be shown during E3 for the first time, it was actually shown at Cochella 2009, during a gig by former Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney.

Performing “Got To Get You Into My Life”, the footage was shown around screens during the song itself. And on PaulMcCartney.com, it said this:

“It was a night of high emotion, the anniversary of losing Linda [McCartney, who died of cancer 10 years ago], memories of George and John and Liverpool youth, it was a night of conquering a whole new crowd, it was a night of firsts and was the unexpected, unannounced world premiere of the images from the coming Beatle Rock Band game which played on vast screens throughout Got To Get You Into My Life.”

Catch the video after the jump. Game’s in development by Harmonix for a release this Christmas for the PS3, Wii & 360.

According to Kotaku, MTV and Apple Corps will be holding a very special press conference from 2pm BST tomorrow where it is expected that in some way, Rock Band will welcome a very big band probably the biggest band that ever existed to it’s catologue, The Beatles.

The Fab Four, consisting of Sir Paul Mc’Cartney, John Lennon, Sir George Harrison and Ringo Starr, have held out on any of the big digital brands of today such as computer games or even Apple’s iTunes although that may have come down to a lawsuit of the use of name between the record company and the same company that make computers which has long since been settled.
