Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Beatlemania Hamburg

Indra, Top Ten, Kaiserkeller, Star Club - these were the clubs on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg / Germany, where in the early 1960s the young and just-formed Beatles honed their skills onstage daily, for up to nine hours at a time, and from where they went on to conquer the world. From May 29th the Beatles will once again have a home in Hamburg, in the place where it all began - on the Reeperbahn, just a guitar's throw from the recently inaugurated Beatles Square and the venues in which they once performed. A unique project dedicated to the Liverpool band is opening its doors: BEATLEMANIA Hamburg.

Visitors to BEATLEMANIA can travel through time, re-living the world of the Beatles. Over 1300 square metres, the exhibition has a lot to offer: A fascinating experience using extraordinary displays of original items and unconventional presentations of selected eras of the Beatles' career - from the Hamburg days up until their break-up. Visitors can follow the footsteps of John, Paul, George and Ringo during their wild times in Hamburg, record songs at Abbey Road Studios and experience the madness of Beatlemania at its peak.

BEATLEMANIA is located right in the heart of the world-famous Reeperbahn, these days undergoing a transformation from a former red-light district to a cool entertainment and music venue. The tradition of attracting young artists and promising new talents continues, and hence, the spot where 50 years ago the story of the Beatles begun still has the liveliest music scene in Northern Europe and still young bands start their careers right here.
WogBlog is happy that Beatles travellers now have a museum in the midst of these historic surroundings. And we'll bet they have a souvenir shop as well!
