Welcome to my Rock'n'Roll London live and interactive virtual experience!
Visit iconic Rock and Roll sites in London from the comfort of your own home!
Be transported to ‘Swinging London’ and the King’s Road – where Rock and Roll royalty would mix with actors, models and artists and members of the aristocracy.
During the 1960s and 1970s London based groups and artists - The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, the Sex Pistols and many others - dominated the world, yet most started out playing in small London clubs. Soak up the creatively charge atmosphere of this now lost artists haunts on my unique virtual tour.
I will share with you the stories of the street, where rock music was heard from every building; where you could watch the pioneers of British rock and roll drinking cappuccino; the music venue with the notoriously sticky floor – where you could see acts perform in front of 200 people before they went on to ‘Stadium rock’; and the venue where Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Cream all played in the same month!
We will visit:
• Where the Rolling Stones recorded their first album
• The former coffee bar where Cliff Richard and Tommy Steele were discovered
• The theatre where Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Cream all played in the same month!
• The site of the infamous UFO Club – the ultimate psychedelic meeting place
• The street known as London’s Tin Pan Alley
• The pub where Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton jammed
• The pub where Rod Stewart first met Ronnie Wood
• Where members of the Sex Pistols lived and made their world debut
• where Oasis shot a famous album cover
• The Marquee Club
• Plus many more!
This is a live online tour, and that there will be a Q & A session at the end. It is a great opportunity to meet fans from around the world!
This tour can be arranged privately, for any number of people. Please send me a message if you would like to request a specific date and time.
