THE HISTORY OF ROCK & POP IN THE WEST END

Rock’n’Roll Marylebone & Fitzrovia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This edition of The History Of Rock & Pop is the Beatle-heavy extravaganza. No part of London is more associated with the Fab Four than Marylebone. They lived here, they wrote here, they filmed here. We’ll track their Cuban-heeled bootprints through the first explosion of unprecedented pop fame to their first faltering steps after the death of their manager Brian Epstein. 

The Fabs are top of the bill, but the supporting cast for this walk isn’t too bad either. We’ve got the pre-fame Pink Floyd in their original London stomping ground. There’s Dylan’s first British gig way back in 1962. And then there’s the glorious old BBC in Portland Place – we’ll round-up the records they banned, the birth and death of Radio One and the scandals that have enveloped the corporation in recent years.  

The Playlist Includes…

The Beatles

Pink Floyd

Bob Dylan

Cream

    What a fantastic tour. Adam really knows his subject matter. He is a great story teller with a delicious sense of humour. We had a great time.

  2. John

    This was an excellent tour with loads of information of which I was unaware. Adam was an excellent, engaging guide and communicated the information very well.

  3. John

    The tour was very enjoyable with loads of information of which I was unaware of before. Adam was also a very engaging guide and communicated very well with the group.

  4. HW & VB

    This is the second Rock ‘n’ Roll tour we’ve been on with Adam and once again it was hugely enjoyable. Adam’s passion for the subject is infectious and his commentary was peppered with anecdotes about the characters who featured in the tour. Adam’s snappy repartee and immense knowledge made this tour as entertaining as it was informative.
