|Los Angeles Beatles tour celebrates George Harrison|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Friday, 02/08/13 2:37 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
As his birthday on February 25 approaches, the Magical History Tour of Los Angeles celebrates the life of George Harrison with special tours that highlight many of the places in the Los Angeles area that were special to him.
No place in the U.S. has as much combined Beatles history as Los Angeles, and Magical History tour guide Gillian Lomax has spent a lot of time researching her tour. Some of the special stops on the tour of interest to George Harrison fans include the house up on Blue Jay Way in the Hollywood Hills, where George lived in the late 60's and wrote the famous song, and another house in Holmby Hills that he rented.
In addition, the tour visits the breathtaking Lake Shrine in Pacific Pallisades. A very emotional part of the tour, this was one of George's favorite places in Los Angeles, and was the site of his memorial service when he passed away in 2001.
There are other George surprises on the tour, as well as other interesting places that are part of the fascinating history of the Beatles in Los Angeles.
"Most people don't associate Los Angeles with The Beatles, but in fact they've had a personal connection with our city since 1964," said Gillian, who was originally raised in Merseyside across from Liverpool.
The cost for the four hour tour is $65. To join this special tour, and for more information, visit www.amagicalhistorytour.com.
