Might we interest you in a trip to Liverpool with The Beatles? Trust us when we say we can get you there in an instant.
Travelodge.co.uk unveils its Evolving Cities Liverpool website, which has some nice treasures celebrating the 55th anniversary of the world’s most iconic band playing at the beloved The Cavern Club for the first time.
A lot has changed since that time. Technology has evolved from vinyl to cassette to digital and, for so many audiophiles, it has returned yet again.
However, the digital age means we can all toast a great moment in music’s history by savoring images from the club as Beatles music pours out over the Internet thanks to a Spotify playlist that is cleverly linked to the website.
Now you can virtually tour the club while listening to some of the music that has made the Beatles such a household institution.
The Cavern Club is just one notable stop along the way, because a wide swath of Liverpool is represented.
The website also boasts some notable features such as the aforementioned Beatles party playlist, a Google Maps integration that lets you tour more than just images of the club’s façade and a treasure trove of factoids and tid bits.
For example, Travelodge states the Beatles ended up playing nearly 300 performances at the Cavern Club, starting well back at a lunchtime gig on Feb. 9, 1961.
As you would expect, Liverpool can credit a great deal of its tourism to the band that created such hits as “Hey Jude,” “Yesterday” and Love Me Do.”
According to BBC News, however, their contribution proves to be far more long lasting and highly significant than you might consider.
The report states that still decades after their initial boom into popular culture, The Beatles are adding about “£82m to the Liverpool economy each year.”
Fortunately, you can virtually flock to the area with the Evolving Cities landing page that not only takes you to various locations of note but also includes a soundtrack you will adore.
