Abbey Road Studios Opening for Special 80th Anniversary Tours
Abbey Road's studio two, the site of many legendary Beatles and Pink Floyd recordings, will open its doors to the public for a very special and unique series of tours as part of their 80th anniversary celebration.
Fans that have already landed themselves a ticket (they're sold out) will have the opportunity to visit the fabled studio during one of two tours scheduled for March 10. Authors Brian Kehew and Kevin Ryan, who wrote the book ‘Recording The Beatles,' plan on giving a very special talk specifically for this anniversary event. Their lecture and presentation will explore the studio’s long history of landmark recordings.
EMI and Abbey Road also intend on allowing guests to view an exhibit of vintage photos and priceless recording artifacts pulled from their archives. Visitors will also be able to see up close the very instruments, microphones and studio equipment used to create some historic, classic rock records.
An early entrance will allow these lucky bastards time to explore and photograph the very location that the records were made. Tickets were somewhat expensive, but then again, for music history buffs this is a chance of a lifetime.
