Beatles might bring million to
Louisville, Kentucky

LOUISVILLE,Ky--- As many as 20,000 Beatles fans
are expected in Louisville, Kentucky over Memorial
Day weekend for America's largest Beatles festival,
which is making this city its new home.

"Abbey Road on the River" has been held for the past
three years in Cleveland but will move to Kentucky May 27-29.

Tourism spending from the event is expected to pump
about $3 million into the local economy, according to
Mayor Jerry Abramson. The weekend will include a Beatles
film festival, lectures on the rock group and the sale of
memorabilia, including paintings by well-known artists.

Neither of the surviving Beatles -- Paul Mccartney and
Ringo Starr-- is expected to attend.

About half of the more than 40 bands expected to appear
will dress like the Beatles and imitate their music, said
show organizer Gary Jacon. The others, he said, will do
interpretations of the Beatles, music in styles that includes
classical reggae and blues.

Jacob said it will cost about $500,000 to stage the event.
He said he patterned the event after a weeklong Beatles festival
held annually for the past two decades in Liverpool, England.
