|Beatles Mach Schau once again in Hamburg|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Tuesday, 09/16/08 8:06 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Last Thursday here on WGO we told you about the new Beatles Plaza that was dedicated in Hamburg, at the crossroads of Reeperbahn and Gro? Freiheit, in the middle of Hamburg's red light district, very close to where the Beatles performed in 1960.
We can now share with you some nice pictures of Beatles Platz in Hamburg, thanks to the AP and the Liverpool Echo.
29 meters wide (about 59 feet), the plaza is designed to look like a giant vinyl record, and when the plaza is illuminated, it looks like a spinning turntable. The drummer figure in the plaza is meant to represent both Ringo and Pete Best.
Not visible in the pictures, the Beatle they left in Hamburg, a figure of Stu looks on from the side of the plaza.
