In partnership with the City of Liverpool, Memphis Tourism unveiled a plaque commemorating the historical and musical relationship between both cities. The plaque is now located on Mathew Street outside of the Cavern Club, where The Beatles were originally discovered.
Kevin Kane, President & CEO of Memphis Tourism said, “Memphis and Liverpool share the spotlight as two iconic global music cities. This plaque made in Memphis placed on Mathew Street outside the world-famous Cavern Club cements the unique and lasting bond between our cities. Together, we are in great company and inspiring each other and music artists all over the world.”
Work continues at the Memphis Convention Center even while the facility hosts major events. Local media was able to see progress since the last construction site visit in May.
Local news outlets in attendance were also provided details on a planned Front Street closure from Jackson to Poplar starting October 7th, running through May 1st. Phase I work is progressing as meeting rooms on the ground level near completion with carpet scheduled for installation in October.
The entire project is due to be complete in the Fall of 2020 with all funding coming through the hotel/motel tax and Tourism Development funds.
