Let It Be Abbey Road! The Cast of Let It Be to Lead Beatles Fans across Abbey Road 45 years to the minute since the Beatles On 8th August 1969, four men walked across a zebra crossing in St John's Wood. Hardly an earth-shattering event, but since then millions of people have come to the very same crossing to imitate those four men. Of course the four men in question were the Beatles, and the crossing is in Abbey Road. The 'Fab Four' were posing for the photo that was to be used on their last album to be recorded. Abbey Road has never been the same since. Every day, fans from around the world come to the crossing to walk in the footsteps of their heroes and to see the studios where the Beatles recorded most of their songs. On 8th August 2014 Beatles fans will cross Abbey Road 45 years to the minute since the Beatles. At 11.35 am the cast of the West End hit show ?Let It Be? will lead fans across the famous Zebra crossing, dressed as the Beatles were exactly 45 years before. From around 11.20, they will also sing a few songs and lead a Beatles singalong. The event is organised by Richard Porter, a professional Beatles tour guide and owner of the Beatles Coffee Shop, which is at St John?s Wood underground station, the nearest to Abbey Road. Richard has been leading Beatles tours for 20 years and has crossed Abbey Road thousands of times. Richard say?s ?every hour of every day there are fans on the crossing ? but August 8th is going to be very special?.
