Dylan unnoticed on Beatles tour

Folk legend Bob Dylan mingled unnoticed with Beatles tourists during a minibus tour to John Lennon’s childhood home. The 67-year-old troubadour paid £16 for the public trip to the 1940s semi in Woolton, Liverpool, last week as his European tour called at the city. He was one of 14 tourists to examine photos and documents in the National Trust-owned home, where Lennon grew up with his aunt Mimi and uncle George.

A National Trust spokeswoman said Dylan “appeared to enjoy himself”. The trust said its tours of the Beatle’s childhood home form “an insight into his humble beginnings”. Visitors are free to wander around the property while asking questions of the curator.

But as tourists prepared to drive out to the house to get an insight into one musical icon, they did not recognise another one sitting next to them. “He took one of our general minibus tours. People on the minibus did not recognise him apparently,” the spokeswoman said. “He could have booked a private tour but he was happy to go on the bus with everyone else,” she added.

The singer’s European tour stopped in Liverpool for a concert at the Echo Arena on 2 May.
