LimmudFest New Orleans

March 19, 2023

NEW ORLEANS, MARCH 19, 2023: Bruce will present a slideshow about his book The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine and he will be selling and signing books.

This audio/visual presentation covers the Beatles phenomenal post-Pepper phase. During the ten-month period following the completion of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the group wrote and recorded a song for live satellite broadcast throughout the world, “All You Need Is Love;” wrote and recorded the songs for a television movie that they produced, directed, wrote and starred in, Magical Mystery Tour; wrote the songs for and inspired the innovative, psychedelic mod-odyssey feature length cartoon, Yellow Submarine; and recorded a trio of totally diverse songs, the group’s return to rock ’n’ roll with Paul’s Fats Domino-styled, piano-driven hit single “Lady Madonna,” George’s lovely “The Inner Light,” whose musical backing was recorded in India with Indian instruments and musicians; and John’s majestic “Across the Universe.” The presentation features audio and video clips of the Beatles that will take you on a Magical Mystery Tour of the swinging sixties.
