|Los Angeles Beatles tour celebrates John Lennon this Saturday|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Monday, 10/08/12 4:17 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
John Lennon's birthday is tomorrow, and this Saturday, Gillian Lomax will celebrate John's birthday on her Magical History Tour of Los Angeles.
Among all the other fascinating destinations, the tour will be stopping at the beach house where John Lennon lived during his lost weekend along with Harry Nilsson, Ringo Starr, Hilary Gerard, Klaus Voorman, May Pang, and Keith Moon. This house was the place where Paul and John had their last photograph taken together when John used to host jam sessions for anybody wanting to stop by. It's also the place where Ringo met Nancy Andrews and went on to date for 6 years.
Coincidentally, three people who will be on the tour on Saturday have birthdays this week, including a lifelong Beatles fan who resides in Venice and shares John's birthday on the 9th, and Gillian, who's birthday is on the 10th.
Gillian says, "John Lennon's birthday is always special to me and lots of other fans. We want to remember his life and not the tragic ending he had. There will never be another one like this quick witted, outspoken, opinionated, talented, entertaining man, and he will always be missed."
No place in the U.S. has as much combined Beatles history as Los Angeles, and Gillian has spent a lot of time researching her tour. "Most people don't associate Los Angeles with The Beatles, but in fact they've had a personal connection with our city since 1964," says Gillian, who was originally raised in Merseyside across from Liverpool. Gillian is currently the Beatles news reporter on Beatles-A-Rama.
The cost for the four hour tour is $65. To join this special tour, and for more information, visit www.amagicalhistorytour.com.
