I was invited, but I doubt I will make it.

This is really once in a lifetime stuff. Walking around in Studio 2. When was the last time the public could do this, 1983?

Nice one, Hello Goodbye. As the thing will be held in Studio 2, how many will fit in each time?

I'm not sure, Sebastian.  The picture of the ticket was posted previously in this thread:  http://www.dmbeatles.com/forums/index.php?topic=5336.msg115909

I posted a website where a virtual tour of Studio 2 could be seen with QuickTime as well as views of the studio from the perspective of each of The Beatles.  Unfortunately that website no longer exists.

But I saved this view of Ringo from John's perspective...

You can use the mouse to rotate the view and look up and down.  Too bad that website is gone.

That was an excellent year, at least for me!
