Beatles Pop-Up Shops On Wheels To Hit The Streets Of New York And Los Angeles On November 13th
Another iconic band from the 60s will be back for the Holidays, but unlike the Rolling Stones, they can’t come up with a super-expensive tour anymore. Rather, some Beatles pop-up shops will hit the road on November 13th!
To celebrate the release of the complete collection of the Fab Four’s remastered studio albums on vinyl, customized double-decker buses – I suppose like the red ones you see in London, but they may be black this time – will stop in the streets of Los Angeles and New York, carrying the 14 vinyl LPs! According to the LA Times, this includes the 12 original UK LPs, plus a double LP pressing of Past Masters, a collection of various B-sides and non-album tracks. A deluxe box set edition containing a 252-page book, the CD versions of the albums, as well as DVDs and Blue-Ray discs of their films will also be available. The Box set is already listed on Amazon and will be on sale on November 13th for $179.98, a total deal! The shops on wheels will also give a unique t-shirt, featuring a different design for each city, to customers having made a minimum purchase at the shops.
As usual, this is all programmed for unemployed people! People stuck at work will miss it,… not that I wanted to buy some Beatles vinyl (I don’t do vinyl) but why is this not happening on a weekend?
And to finish with that, there will be listening parties all over the country, the same evening,… All right, I understand that these are remastered albums but people will really meet to listen to … the Beatles?
