Reflections on Liverpool Beatleweek Part Four – British Music Experience and a Concert at the Pier Head

Day four for us opened with a visit to the British Music Experience. We went to this while it was at the O2 in London, and I was sad when it closed there, so it was great to visit it at it’s new home at the Cunard Building in Liverpool. We especially had great fun in the music room, with me playing drums, and Lilia guitar. If you go to Liverpool, it’s well worth a visit.

We then went to the Pier Head, where Cavern City Tours has a great outdoor stage, right in front of the Liver Building. There we saw the great Nube 9, Rocks Off, a great Stones tribute band, and Back From the USSR, featuring the wonderful singer, Alyona Yarushina. Her version of Here There and Everywhere is the best I’ve ever heard (and that includes the Beatles!)

The weather at the Pier Head as very warm and sunny, very unusual for an August Bank Holiday in Liverpool!

It was then time to say goodbye to all our friends, and catch the train back to London. But we will see you all again next year!
