Despite saying other shows would be announced “imminently,” there's been no other new shows confirmed by the site at this writing. Published reports in South America says there will be a string of shows in the Southern Hemisphere as the tour begins its 2014 outings.

If you like the Beatles: The music video streaming site Zuus has a channel called “If You Like The Beatles.” The first video we saw on the channel was Paul McCartney's “Queenie Eye.” It's not strictly a Beatles channel, as we also saw Neil Young's “Hitchhiker,” R.E.M's “Aftermath” and Green Day's “Macy's Day Parade.” It looks like the music gears toward more modern than classic, though.
More "Let It Be": Collectors Music Reviews says a new bootleg DVD of the movie "Let It Be" taken from a Japanese TV broadcast is being released.
