Cirque du Soleil Has new Background Music

Today's LA Times describes how George Martin is re-mixing tunes from Beatles for a new Cirque du Soleil show. Remix of Beatles music due - Los Angeles Times: "In one number, Harrison's vocal from 'Within You Without You' is heard over the rhythm track from 'Tomorrow Never Knows.' In another, the Martins set Starr's vocal in 'Octopus's Garden' against the string accompaniment to 'Good Night' from the White Album."

Not sure how to take this story. I've never been a fan of the Cirque du Soleil (and its other variations) or a fan of the Beatles.

Some Beatles fans can be rather puritanical. I wonder if they'll be happy with this blend or outraged.

I like the Cirque du SOleil, but find the music annoying and pompous. If the Beatles fans were able to survive the Sgt. Pepper's movie, then they should get over this one as well.
