Foxwoods is bringing the lads of Liverpool to Connecticut with a one-of-a-kind exhibition filled with rare artifacts and photographs.
“The Magical History Tour: A Beatles Memorabilia Exhibition” opens today in the casino’s Sunset Ballroom and runs through Feb. 5, offering the opportunity to retrace the steps of the legendary band.
The exhibition consists of four sections: Beginnings, Influences and Life in Liverpool; Life on the Road; Innovation in the Studio; and The Decade of the Break-up.
The first gallery begins with the influence of American music on John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr when they are just kids. Visitors will see the original drum set of the Quarry Men, hear music from the 1950s and early 1960s, and step into the most accurate reproduction of the Cavern Club in existence.

Life on the road
The second gallery is all about the Beatles touring as a professional music group and the commercialism associated with being a big name in pop music. See rare photographs of the Beatles’ tour from 1964 to 1966, many on display for the first time, alongside a plethora of memorabilia from that time period.
In the studio
Through a 1960s sound studio interactive and fully immersive audio experience, visitors will become familiar with the Beatles’ innovative work in the studio and how their producer, George Martin, supported this direction.
Decade of break-up
The final gallery will include dozens of artifacts from the Beatles’ individual projects after the group dissolved in 1970, including Lennon’s juke box, the legal document dissolving the Beatles as an entity (a.k.a. “The Break-up Letter”), clothing, personal items used in concert and the album signed by Lennon for his eventual assassin.
