Beatles in the Jungle

We all know that there are Beatles fans all over the world each with their own personal level of passion and obsession.  Recently a fan wrote to us about a discovery she made while exploring the jungle in Thailand.

Dominique was in the jungle and stumbled upon a devoted fan and his Beatles resort. The man and his wife tried to turn their passion for the Beatles into a resort with a Beatles theme.

Dominique didn't think that it seemed to be successful, but she was fascinated by his memorabilia and the incongruity of the setting.  She took the photos below to share this jungle Beatles oasis with other fans.

The Analogues are coming to London July 13


 



THE ANALOGUES
Magical Mystery Tour
Wednesday 13 July | LONDON Barbican

By equal parts a musical showpiece and a creative sonic experiment, The Analogues take their name from their dedication to recreating the complex and layered sound of The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour, playing the same instruments that the Fab Four used to record the album at Abbey Road Studios.

Sidestepping all digital effects, songs such as Strawberry Fields Forever, Across the Universe and All You Need is Love, as well as other gems from the band’s catalogue, are supported by beautiful vintage instruments and managed by as many technicians as musicians on stage recreating music which The Beatles themselves never performed live.

After developing this extraordinary show by playing some of the largest theatres in the Netherlands, The Analogues premiered their performance at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival in May that ‘fairly rocked the Theatre Royal’ (epd24.co.uk – full review can be found here), before playing London in July.

‘Frighteningly good!’ (**** de Volkskrant)
'A true spectacle!’ (**** Het Parool)
