BRITISH INVASION: MEMPHIS LEGENDARY MUSEUM UNVEILS BEATLES EXHIBIT

Right before visitors to the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum enter a hallway at the end of the tour that takes them past a guestbook and leads into the gift shop, they’ll walk past a collection of black-and-white photos.

It’s a new temporary exhibit, “The Beatles Hidden Gallery,” that was exhibited first in Liverpool, England, the Beatles’ hometown, and then in San Francisco earlier this year before traveling to Memphis, where the Beatles played two historic shows 45 years ago. It will be in Memphis through Sept. 11. The exhibit showcases a few candid and intimate moments with the Fab Four, the mop-topped quartet whose music transcended rock and sent fans into hysterics during concerts that included the group’s two Memphis shows on Aug. 19, 1966, at the Mid-South Coliseum.

“We knew that ‘The Beatles Hidden Gallery’ exhibit had the potential to create some interest among locals, especially given the unique tie with the band’s infamous 1966 concert here in Memphis, and with the recent attention on the Mid-South Coliseum,” said museum director John Doyle. (more)
