Been to Abbey Road, Strawberry Fields (Liverpool) and other places plus in my town I've just realized theres a bench dedicated to John, After reading the new book The Beatles in Scotland it told me about it and found it, don't know how long it's been there but feels weird I've gone past it without realizing it, I'll prob sit on it alot

I've never been to any Beatles landmarks, but there is a street named Abbey Road and a street named Penny Lane near where I live. I haven't even been there, though.  :-/

My hubby and I finally visited Blue Jay Way...  :)


The street sign was hard to find.  It was posted very high up on a pole and was sort of covered by other plants.  I'm sure there have been a lot of Blue Jay Way sign thefts, however, so I guess this explains why it was slightly hidden.


The name was also painted onto the curb, which was easier to spot than the sign.

Thankfully, the day was sunny so we didn't get lost in fog or anything! :P 8)

Have been to Liverpool, did the mystery tour on the bus so saw all the houses and stuff. By some almighty coincidence, the date was July 6, 1997. Exactly 40 years since John and Paul met at Woolton fete. And the bus goes past the church! Did Abbey Road in London of course.

Earlier that year, we were in the U.S and visited the Dakota and Central Park. also went to Candlestick Park in San Francisco, where the boys played their last live concert in '66. I follow the 49ers who play there. Um, we drove past Shea too.

Another landmark in my town The Odeon Cinema Lothian Road. It used to be the ABC Cinema and I used to visit there as it used to ne a pound for a cinema ticket. I didn't realize until I read in one of my books The Beatles played there in 1964 and did a autograph session there.

Across the road is The Usher Hall were Paul & Wings performed in the 70's. It has been closed for referbished but opens again this Summer. I normally see The Bootleg Beatles in there.

Surprised no one has mentioned this little building on Broadway in NYC.

I tell ya, been inside only once, but must have walked by it more than a hundred times through the years.  And every time I've gazed at it, and considering all the names of the entertainers and noted personalities that graced it's stage from 1948-1973 and then 1993 through today, there is just one thing that springs to mind first:

"Ladies and gentlemen...THE BEATLES!"
"2...3...4...Close your eyes and I'll kiss you, tomorrow I'll miss you.  Remember I'll always be true..."

BTW, if you are ever back in NYC again, stop by that place.  Just down the block and across the street is the Winter Garden Theater, where today you can catch Mamma Mia, but back in the 1970s you could have caught:

Badly cropped shot, but it appears to be the only one I could find on Google image search of the marquee back in the day...

Yeah, I have walked past it, once. Never been inside though.

I saw Shea Stadium (the old one) from the window of an airplane. (I was landing at La Guardia.)

I live near the place where The Beatles played in the Netherlands in 1964. This monument was erased some years ago to remind people of the concert.

And it was erected too. I don't know how it was erased, as the picture shows it well there.  ;D
