July 10 is Beatles Day

A Day In The Life To Commemorate The Beatles

April 23, 2008 - Global

By Richard Smirke, Manchester

Liverpool will host a day of celebrations July 10 in honor of the city's favorite sons, the Beatles.

Intended as a 24-hour celebration of the Fab Four, the Beatles Day program will include a number of special events taking place throughout the northern English city, including a Beatles Parade, a Beatles Fun Run and tribute bands playing a series of roof top gigs.

The day will culminate in "Imagine: The Concert" at the city's 10,000-capacity Echo Arena, where a number of contemporary bands will perform Beatles' hits, selected by the public.

According to organizers, both Sir Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono have expressed their support for Beatles Day, which it is hoped will become an annual event. Liverpool is currently in the midst of its year-long celebrations as a European Capital of Culture.

"Liverpool and The Beatles are inseparable," comments Phil Redmond, deputy chairman of Liverpool Culture Company, in a statement. "Liverpool made the Beatles what they were and their immortal heritage has come to play a huge role in the way the city is viewed around the world today. I would love people to come to view Beatles Day as a landmark on the calendar in years to come."

Wouldn't that be neat! To see The Beatles Day on my calender. A sure way their music will never be forgotten.
