The Beatles UK Tours
Martin Creasy, author of Legends on Tour: The Pop Package Tours of the 1960s is currently working on a book that deals solely on the subject of the Beatles' UK Tours, entitled Beatlemania: The Beatles UK Tours. The book will be published by Omnibus Press on April 4th, 2011. Here's the description: "Between 1963 and 1965 The Beatles undertook six amazing UK tours and along the way met many fans whose memories of these encounters tell the real story of what actually happened when the Fab Four hit the road. It was loud, chaotic and as exciting as anything Britain had ever seen. It was Beatlemania!"
On his website, Creasy says: "I'm now heavily into the next project - an in-depth look at the six full UK tours of The Beatles between the beginning of 1963 and the end of 1965."
"There have been many books on The Beatles, but this one will include memories from musicians who toured with them, journalists who covered the shows, police who were on duty, staff from the venues where they played and hotels where they stayed... and perhaps best of all... the fans who were there."
