Liverpool, home of the Fab Four, finds all you need is love

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

After decades of industrial decline, the northern English city of Liverpool's cry of Help!is being heard as tourists flock to the home of The Beatles. The recession-hit city's struggling economy now receives an infusion of hundreds of millions of pounds a year as a result of visitors drawn to Liverpool by the pull of the world's best-selling pop group, local government agencies estimate.

Beginning tomorrow, an expected 50,000 Beatles fans will Come Togetherin Liverpool to celebrate the annual International Beatles Week. Despite the fact the band has not played together since the end of the 1960s and two of its members, John Lennon and George Harrison, are dead, The Beatles' home town still attracts fans from regions all over the world.
