The Beatles bus will mark the release of the new Beatles box-set on vinyl. The box features all 14 vinyl LPs with a 252-page hardbound book.

The mobile pop-up shop will have the box for sale as well as DVDs and Blu-rays of the recently released ‘Yellow Submarine’ and ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ feature films as well as Beatles merch items.

Each city will have a special Beatles t-shirt (unique for each city) available exclusively on the bus with a minimum purchase.

Locations for the bus are:

New York:
* Midtown (9:30am – 11am): Seventh Avenue, between 49th Street and 50th Street
* SoHo (12pm – 1:30pm): Broadway, between Prince Street and Spring Street
* Wall Street (2:30pm – 4pm): Broadway, between Cortlandt Street and Liberty Street

* Downtown (2:30pm – 4pm): L.A. Live (at Olympic Boulevard and South Figueroa Street)

The new Beatles box-set has been “manufactured on 180-gram, audiophile quality vinyl with replicated artwork, the 14 albums return to their original glory with details including the poster in The Beatles (The White Album), the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band’s cutouts, and special inner bags for some of the titles. The 252-page hardbound book, exclusive to the boxed edition, is authored by award-winning radio producer Kevin Howlett and features a dedicated chapter for each of the albums, as well as insight into the creation of the remasters and how the vinyl albums were prepared. The 12”x12” book showcases a wealth of photographs spanning The Beatles’ recording career, including many images which were not included in the 2009 CD booklets”.
