Is this the first video of The Beatles: Rock Band? [update]

3:10 AM on 04.19.2009 // Samit Sarkar

On Friday night, the opening night of the 2009 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, headliner and rock legend Paul McCartney thrilled the crowd with a marathon set that lasted nearly two and a half hours (boy, what I wouldn’t have given to have been able to have seen the show). Video captured by audience members has already appeared on YouTube, and it appears that during one song, the massive video board behind McCartney and his band showed the first-ever footage of The Beatles: Rock Band, which will hit stores on September 9th.

Obviously, it’s difficult to be absolutely sure from the video -- which isn’t exactly in high definition -- that the video is indeed from The Beatles: Rock Band, and after all, it’s certainly not note highways. It looks like the stuff that goes on in Rock Band games in the background, behind the note highways themselves. But it’s clear that the Fab Four are in the video, and it seems to have the same art direction/style as previous Rock Band games. The footage also makes use of filters and effects (such as a psychedelic kaleidoscope-esque look), which we’re used to seeing in Rock Band.

Why don’t you be the judge? Hit the jump to see two different angles of “Got To Get You Into My Life,” the Motown-tinged track from 1966’s Revolver, and tell us if you think we’re on to something, or if we’re fools on a hill. You can also take a look at the box art for the Limited Edition Premium Bundles in the gallery.

If you’re already sold on this game, you can pre-order it to get into a special club, which will provide a whole host of special goodies, because you’re special. As for us, well, we’re holding out until the rumored vocal harmonies are confirmed.

[Update: According to a review of the set on McCartney’s Web site (via Kotaku), the video was, indeed, the first footage of The Beatles: Rock Band:

...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.

Well, there you go, then. Thanks also to Dtoiders SeriousJones and Vedicardi2!]

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.
