UK Tour book soon out
Back in September we told you a bit about Martin Creasy’s new book about The Beatles UK Tours. The book cover is now revealed (see above) and we have also come across an alternative cover, possibly available in other countries (see below).
Here’s what Martin Creasy, speaking on his website, has to say: “I’m delighted to announce that my second book – Beatlemania! – The Real Story Of The Beatles UK Tours – will be out on April 4, 2011, published by Omnibus Press, the world’s largest publisher of music related books.”
“Beatlemania! has been years in the making, featuring a gig-by-gig account of the six UK tours of the Fab Four between the beginning of 1963 and the end of 1965.
Included are interviews with pop stars who joined The Beatles on those tours, plus the memories of national music writers and regional reporters and photographers who covered the shows, cinema managers and staff who hosted them, the fans lucky enough to have been there and the policemen who had the duty of protecting those fans (and The Beatles) from themselves. There is even the odd anecdote from hoteliers who had the privilege of putting up the world’s favourite pop group for a night.”
“Beatlemania! – The Real Story Of The Beatles UK Tours is already available to order on the internet. I will be putting more info on the site in the coming weeks and months “.
The book is available for pre-ordering on Amazon (UK) at £12.69.
