THE WEDNESDAY NIGHT ROCK’N’ROLL LONDON TOUR

Rock’n’Roll Marylebone & Fitzrovia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This edition of the Wednesday Night Rock’n’Roll London Walk 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.
