Beatles' Abbey Road 50th Anniversary at the Hard Rock Cafe Manila

Beatles Abbey Road 50 years Hard Rock Cafe


I grew up listening to Beatles (thank you to musical influences from my parents and brother). I sometimes wish I was born in that era. 

When I got the chance to visit London, I made sure I crossed and visited the Abbey Road. 

Beatles launched the Abbey Road album 50 years ago and to celebrate its golden anniversary, Hard Rock Cafe Manila will hold a special night - for one night only—on September 28, starting at 8:00pm!
