London Walking Rock’n’Roll London, Tottenham Court Road

What: “All roads once led to Rome…. Now they lead to London. In terms of rock ‘n’ roll this is an inarguable fact. Big bucks may well be made in Hollywood – but rock’n’roll reputations are made here in The Big Smoke. The cast list of this NEW London Walk reads like a who’s who of the music: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Blur and Oasis. Amongst others. Each act has a London tale to tell, often a tale so decadent that Caligula himself would blush!* London Calling. Lend an ear.” (*With thanks to Morrissey).”

Where and when: 2pm (today), Tottenham Court Road Station (Exit 3)

Donation: £9, £7 concessions

More info: Here and here
