Beatles Tour shares hidden fab history of Los Angeles
by Dave Haber, Beatles News Editor
It's taken over forty years, but at last Los Angeles and the west coast of America has a Beatles tour of their own. It's called A Magical History Tour and is guided by Beatles expert Gillian Lomax, who researched and developed the tour.
Ex-Liverpudlian Gillian said, "The longer I was here in Los Angeles, the more I realized how many connections the are to the Beatles, and there are loads of tours here in L.A. for stars home and I just thought, I could do the Beatles, because they all lived here."
Launched in 2009, this exclusive three and a half hour tour of Los Angeles takes visitors in an air-conditioned van to the very places where the Beatles lived, the venues where they performed and the studio where they recorded. The tour also includes extensive historical information and is packed with Beatles trivia and rare information about the Fab Four.
"For example," Gillian says, "most people don't know that the Beatles met Elvis Presley for the first time out here, and that's part of my tour too, we go by the mansion where he lived in Bel Air."
The tour starts in Santa Monica and ends at the legendary Hollywood Bowl where the Beatles played to sold out audiences in 1964 and 1965. Along the way passengers will hear popular and rare songs related to the Beatles west coast experiences, and hear stories and anecdotes about the Beatles and their love of America.
DJ Rob Quicke, Host of the syndicated Britsound Radio Show, said, "This tour promises to be an amazing and essential experience for all Beatles fans."
Tour guide Gillian is also a radio personality well known and loved by countless Beatles fans. She has been the voice of Beatles news for the past seven years, reporting Beatles news with 97.1 KLSX and 95.5 KLOS Breakfast With The Beatles, as senior correspondent on Britsound Radio, and news reporter on Beatlesradio.com and Beatlesarama.
"L.A. is filled with many exciting and different events happening every day, it's no wonder The Beatles all chose to live here at one time", says Gillian. "Anyone who likes The Beatles will find this tour fascinating and exciting."
