Magical Mystery Tour London

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR LAUNCH PARTY LONDON 1967

A very special party was held on the 21st December 1967 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London. It was to celebrate the imminent screening of the Magical Mystery Tour on BBC TV.

Fancy dress was the theme. As you can see from above, a plethora of costumes were worn.

It’s no secret that John Lennon was a huge fan of Elvis Presley when he was a teenager. Lennon formed his first band, The Quarrymen, which would later become The Beatles, as a result of his love for Elvis Presley and rock and roll.

“Without Elvis, there would be no Beatles,” John Lennon stated matter-of-factly in a 1980 interview.
