The Beatles vinyl bus to visit London this week
The bus will be parked up at Abbey Road Studios on Wednesday evening
The Beatles' double-decker vinyl bus will visit London this week.
The custom-made mobile record store has already visited New York and Los Angeles, and will now be gracing Abbey Road Studios in North West London on the evening of Wednesday November 21 to host a special listening event called 'The Beatles Uncovered'.
The buses have been serving as a promotional devices for the Beatles recently remastered 14 stereo LPs - the 12 UK originals and the B-sides and rarities collection Past Masters Volumes One & Two – which are now available individually or in a box set that includes a hardbound book.
Next year, Abbey Road Studios are set to open their doors to the public.
The recording studio will be hosting talks in the iconic Studio Two, which was famously used by The Beatles, as well as by Kate Bush, Pink Floyd, Adele and Oasis.
The events follow talks held in the studio earlier this year as part of the studio's 80th anniversary celebrations.
The next talks will take place in March 2013, and will again be hosted by Brian Kehew and Kevin Ryan, who were behind the book Recording The Beatles. They will take place March 8-10 and 15-17. Tickets cost £80.
