News @ Noon: Beatles Exhibit Opens At The Mall Of America [AUDIO]
BLOOMINGTON – A new exhibit featuring one of the most influential bands ever has opened at the Mall of America. “Ladies and Gentlemen – The Beatles” is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of their appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Co-Owner of the Midwest Music Museum Joe O’Brien says the exhibit tracks the band’s success – featuring John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – from their start in Liverpool in 1960 to their concert at the old Met Stadium in Bloomington…
O’Brien says the exhibit includes the recreation of a teenage girl’s bedroom in the 1960’s, with Beatles music playing in the background. You can also take a drum lesson from Ringo.
The exhibit is open at MOA from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. seven days a week through September 7th.
An exhibit featuring the Rolling Stones will open this fall.
