LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE BEATLES!
Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! brings us back to the early ‘60s when rock & roll was re-energized – some say saved – by four lads from Liverpool. The exhibit covers the period from early 1964 through mid-1966 – the years Beatlemania ran rampant in America. During this time the band affected nearly every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, art, advertising, media, and, of course, music. On display are many Beatles-related pop culture artifacts from the period, as well as correspondence, instruments, posters, photographs, interviews, interactive displays, and an oral history booth in which visitors can leave their own impressions of The Beatles. Screenings and a series of talks reveal the continuing impact of the Beatles. These photographs taken by their U.S. Tour Manager, Bob Bonis, are the main photographic component of the exhibition.
The GRAMMY Museum® at LA Live explores and celebrates the enduring legacies of all forms of music; the creative process; the art and technology of the recording process; and the history of the GRAMMY Awards, the premier recognition of recorded music accomplishment.
The GRAMMY Museum is an exciting and interactive celebration of the power of music occupying a vibrant new space in downtown Los Angeles. Four floors of cutting edge exhibits, interactive experiences and films provide a one-of-a-kind visitor experience — engaging, educational, celebratory and inspirational.
