You can see them standing there: The Beatles immortalised on Liverpool’s Pier Head
A new statue of The Beatles has been unveiled in Liverpool – 50 years after their last show on Merseyside.
The bronze sculpture, which weighs 1.2 tonnes, has been given to the city by the Cavern Club – the venue synonymous with the Fab Four in the 1960s.
The depiction of the band walking along the Mersey reflects a real photo shoot.
Sculptor Andy Edwards said he hoped his statue, which stands on the Pier Head, would become “a place of ritual” for people to come together.
