Roll Up For the Magical Musical Tour

Thursday, January 24, 2008
Sure, Liverpool is famous for its Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, but if you find yourself in Manchester, England during the next few months you may just want to check out the Magical Musical Tour, being sponsored by Urbis. The tours take place on January 26, February 9 & 23, and March 8 & 15. Here's a bit of what the Urbis site says about it:

"If you love to reminisce about being a teenager in the 60s, or wish you had been, then Urbis has a brand new tour for you!

Starting from Urbis at 10AM every other Saturday from 12th January, the 60s Magical Music Tour will take visitors out around the city to some of the key sites from Manchester's musical heyday. Discover where all the star acts such as The Hollies, The Who and Jimi hendrix played on the circuit.

Visit the spots where Manchster's Northern Soul crowd used to hang and find out how the Twisted Wheel kept its music Manchester's best loved secret!

If you still have 60s clothing in your wardrobe then why not get into the spirit of the era and come in costume! There'll even be a taster of the music discussed as the tour is accompanied by a soundtrack featuring some of the hits of the decade."

Sounds like fun. Too bad I'm 3,000 miles away and won't be in the UK until later in the year. The tour lasts for 2 hours and more information can be found here on the Urbis site.
