Beatlemania returns!

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Beatlemania is back!
More than a half century after The Beatles started to perform together, the band is expected to top charts again with the release of a new video game and the band's remastered catalogue.

A new interactive video game called the Beatles: Rock Band, was launched from the Cavern Club in Liverpool - where Beatlemania began some 50 years ago, and distributed from today in the United States.

The game offers up dozens of Beatles' tunes.
Analysts say the game could sell up to two million units in the first month alone.

If you're not really into video games, there's another NEW way to enjoy the iconic pop group's music - the whole collection, 16 albums in all - has been digitally re-mastered for the first time since 1987, making 'hits' like 'Help' and 'All You Need is Love', sound better than ever.

Beatles Fan Richard Porter said, "John Lennon always said the best way to listen to Sgt. Pepper is on mono, and for a long time mono hasn't been available, so it's great they're doing the box set of the mono CDs."

Many of those songs are now expected to dominate the pop charts.
