[Posted by Dave Haber on Saturday, 08/01/09 8:19 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
On 8th August 1969, the Beatles crossed Abbey Road. Next Saturday, 8th August 2009, a special day of events have been planned to celebrate the anniversary.
A special Beatles walking tour will cross the Abbey Road Crossing exactly 40 years to the minute since the Beatles did it in 1969. The tour will be lead by Richard Porter, a professional Beatles tour guide and owner of the Beatles Coffee Shop. The special tour starts at Marylebone Station at 9.20am. There is no need to book for the tour, just turn up at the meeting point.
At 11.35am fans will cross Abbey Road exactly 40 years to the minute since the Beatles. They will be led across by Beatles band Sgt Pepper's Only Dartboard Band, who will be wearing replicas of the clothes the Beatles wore 40 years before.
Tony Bramwell will be signing copies of his new book Magical Mystery Tours, My Life with the Beatles at the Beatles Coffee Shop from 12 noon, and at 7.30pm Sgt Pepper's Only Dart Board Band will play a special concert at Peter Parker's Rock and Roll Club at 4 Denmark Street.
If you can't get to the event in person, it will be broadcast by CBS News in the US, on Russian National TV and also in Spain and France!
You can also watch it live on the Abbey Road webcam!
