It may be a little touristy, but Steve and I decided to go and take some photos of the Beatles statues, designed by Andy Edwards. They weigh 1.2 tonnes and they were unveiled in December 2015 by Julia Baird, the sister of the late John Lennon. The date was deliberate, they were marking the 50th anniversary since the band’s final appearance in Liverpool, at the Empire.
It was a little difficult to get a photo as this is a popular location, but Steve and I were a little early meeting up with Bev and Susan. I wonder whether there will be a similar series of statues at Goals in Norwich in the future, marking when myself and other key players perform our last game.
The Liver Building in the background. Bev and Susan got their own photos at the statue later, but Bev had an altercation with a member of the public. From what I can work out, Bev pushed in and the member of the public got annoyed. Steve and I thought that she was lucky to have Susan as a carer throughout the weekend, but we didn’t say anything.
