The 21st June has been inaugurated “The Heart of Hollywood Tour”, an incredible exhibition and musical tribute at the golden age of Hollywood, which will be in London at the O2 until 17th July 2018 and will then embark on a world tour.
Attractions at the Heart of Hollywood Tour are:
The original letter ‘H’ from the iconic Hollywood sign which made its first appearance outside the USA after it was replaced 40 years ago. 45 feet tall and weighing 95 tons, the ‘H’ stands taller than four London double-decker buses, it can even be seen from space! On the bottom of the letter there’s a dedication from a writer with a grammatical mistake which he made on March 31st, 1977: “Linda I only have eye’S for you”.
The Hollywood Memorabilia Exhibition, with some of Hollywood’s most famous items from the Hollywood Museum and private collections including: Elvis Presley’s black stage suit, a signed fedora hat from Michael Jackson, Beatle’s original drum kit, Marilyn Monroe’s clothing and jewellery, costume memorabilia from the Wizard of Oz’s most loved characters, Christopher Reeve’s Superman costume and many more.
The Hollywood Art Gallery, an exclusive exhibition of artworks created by Hollywood artist Bill Mack, who also curated all the exhibition and tour. Artworks include original paintings of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra and original Hollywood pictures featuring personal effects from Marilyn Monroe’s hair to Judi Garlands dress.
The Hollywood Nights show, a tribute to Hollywood’s best loved musicals in Hollywood History International Creative Director and Choreographer Nathan Clarke. The Hollywood ‘H’ sign form a backdrop to the live musical theatre show with an unforgettable projection of lights.
The Heart of Hollywood Tour is a fantastic experience for movie and music lovers of all ages! The tour’s founder and featured artist Bill Mack said: “…London is a fantastic first stop for us and we are excited to share this piece of history with those keen to soak up a little glamour of that unforgettable Golden Age. The Hollywood sign is among the most famous structures in the world. This is a unique opportunity to see it, alongside the most iconic artifacts from the timeless movies we all hold close to our hearts.
The Heart of Hollywood Tour will be at the O2 until 17th 2018 July, and The Hollywood Nights show will take place until 14th July. The event will then embark on a 60 city, five-year global tour, culminating in 2023 and returning to a permanent home in Los Angeles, exactly 100 years since it first stood tall on the Hollywood Hills! You can’t miss the fantastic and once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit them!
