Beatle fans, now you can cruise with Beatle Brunch host Joe Johnson from one Beatles historic port to the next, on board Cunard’s luxury liner, The Queen Mary 2.
Join Joe on board The QM 2 on a transatlantic cruise departing New York City, (the site of The Beatles first U.S. visit), on Tuesday October 28th, sailing across the pond to Southampton, where The Beatles famously played the Gaumont Cinema on The Roy Orbison tour, 1963, along with Gerry and The Pacemakers.
On this cruise, Joe will present several multi-media talks on the history of The Beatles, including an all-inclusive presentation of A Hard Day’s Night, which just had it’s 50th anniversary remastering for blu ray and DVD.
Hear and see behind the scenes stories on the making of this landmark film, a “Marx Brother’s” film of its day, via newly released photos and enhanced video. Joe will also present two other Beatle talks and be looking for Beatle fans to interview for an upcoming Beatle Brunch program.
Also on board, legendary author Ivor Davis, who will talk about his new book, “The Beatles and Me on Tour”, a chronicle of that tour told by an insider, then a young reporter for the London Daily Express. Ivor traveled with The Beatles as the only British newspaper writer invited on the entire tour.
Through thirty-four days, Davis traveled with The Beatles watching them make rock history. He enjoyed unrestricted access to the four boys fresh from Liverpool—from their hotel suites to backstage at concert arenas to their private jet. He fended off excited girls, and their insistent mothers, attempts to hook up with the band. Ivor played all night games of Monopoly with John Lennon, became the ghostwriter of a newspaper column for George Harrison, and witnessed many other private happenings.
The Fab soundtrack on board will be provided by The Beatles Experience Tribute Band, performing on board in the Royal Court Theatre.
This truly authentic tribute to Britain’s finest musical ensemble, The Beatles Experience has been entertaining millions around the globe since they began in 2004. Their show covers the depth of The Beatles career from the heady days of the early sixties to their final farewell on a London rooftop at Saville row.
The band is regularly invited to play at Liverpool’s famous Cavern Club and was the official band for the launch of Beatles Rock Band music video game published by MTV Games which was held at the Cavern.
The highlight of their career was in 2013, when they played on the grounds of Buckingham Palace (a rare privilege indeed for a tribute act) and were then invited to tea and sandwiches!
