Alan Cross is one of Canada’s leading music nerds and the host of the Ongoing History of New Music heard right here on 99.3FM every Sunday at 9PM.
I read today that he is offering up a guided tour of London!
Like how cool would this be?
Having the opportunity to dive deep in London’s important music scene with Alan Cross by your side would be a time.
Here’s the plan.
Here’s what we have on tap.
DAY 1: Depart from Toronto or Vancouver on our overnight flight to London Heathrow.
DAY 2: Transfer to our hotel. The afternoon is yours to enjoy before our 7pm welcome event (Details TBA)
DAY 3: Half-day (9am – 1pm) punk and new wave tour. The afternoon and evening is yours to do as you please.
DAY 4: After a leisurely morning, we’ll go on a classic rock and Beatles sight-seeing tour (1pm – 4:30pm)
DAY 5: A full-day (9am – 5:30pm) tour called London Gets the Blues
DAY 6: A day on your own. Go nuts.
DAY 7: Transfer from the hotel to the airport for our flight back home—UNLESS you’d like to extend your trip with me to the Download Festival June 10-12.* This year’s lineup features Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Deftones, Rammstein, Billy Talent, Korn, Megadeth and dozens more.
Go here to see a detailed itinerary.
All of that sounds fun to me….I think I’d have to stay for the festival. It would be the right thing to do. They leave June 4th and it costs $3,355 for the week. Book here. Just need to win me a 50/50 at an upcoming Canucks game and I’ll see you there!
