Muhammad Ali Center
 

 

John Lennon and Yoko Ono, in 1969, used “Bed-Ins” as a way to put themselves and their message of peace in the public spotlight.
 Next month, visitors to the Muhammad Ali Center and Abbey Road on the River will be able to learn more about the couple’s passion for peace
 and how they used these publicity stunts to garner international attention. Through stories and photographs, the Give Peace a Chance exhibit
will offer visitors the opportunity to sit on the edge of the “Bed-In” in Montreal that took place at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel for seven days in May of 1969.

The exhibit opens at the Ali Center on March 15 and ends on Memorial Day, May 26
the last day of this year’s Abbey Road on the River Festival.

The timing of this announcement comes almost to the day of the Fifty Year Anniversary of Muhammad Ali’s meeting with the Beatles in Miami
on the group’s first tour to the United States. They met just a few days prior to Ali’s epic bout against Sonny Liston in February 1964,
when the then 22-year-old Cassius Clay became the Heavyweight Champion of the World for the first time.

In celebration of this notable anniversary, February ’64, a 3-day festival celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Beatlemania,
will take place February 7th-9th at the Muhammad Ali Center. February ’64 will feature twelve bands showcasing the early music (pre-1966) of The Beatles.
The highlight of the weekend will be a re-creation of The Beatles’ historic Ed Sullivan Show debut on Sunday,
February 9th at 8:00pm, exactly 50 years to the minute when Americans began their never ending love affair with John, Paul, George, and Ringo.
The hour-long variety show will be re-created in its entirety in the Kentucky Center for the Arts’ Bomhard Theatre.
Tickets to February ’64 are available at 
www.arotr.com.

“The Beatles and Muhammad Ali share a special place in history,” said Gary Jacob, Founder of the Abbey Road On the River the Festival.
“Fifty years ago they both shocked and rocked the world, and they still are. Now that the Ali Center and Abbey Road on the River
 have created a partnership, there will be more than ever to take in for the thousands of Beatles fans who attend the Abbey Road Festival.”

Donald Lassere, President and CEO of the Muhammad Ali Center, agreed. “This partnership expands our offerings for the public.
 By adding the Give Peace A Chance exhibit, hosting February64, and being a venue for Abbey Road on the River performances,
we feel confident that this will be an exceptional time to mark and pay tribute to the half century of greatness that The Beatles and
 Muhammad Ali have passionately given the world.”

Watch for upcoming events at the Ali Center between February 7th and May 26th
 to celebrate Fifty Years of Beatlemania.  

The Ali Center is located at 144 North Sixth Street in downtown Louisville.
 Parking is available on side streets or in the PARC garage located below the Ali Center.  For questions, please call 502.584.9254.
