Hofner Sponsor Art Installation A new giant Beatle Bass at The Beatles Story Paul McCartney 80


Giant bass guitar art installation by The Beatles Story and Höfner erected to celebrate Paul McCartney’s 80th year and illustrious career ahead of Glastonbury Festival appearance.

The Beatles Story, Liverpool’s award-winning attraction, have teamed up with instrument manufacturer Höfner to celebrate Paul McCartney’s 80th year ahead of his Glastonbury performance with the launch of a unique art installation this June. 

The Beatles-themed exhibition have commemorated this milestone year by unveiling a unique, Insta-worthy art installation in partnership with iconic guitar manufacturer Höfner. The statue, which resembles a gigantic 1963 Höfner bass guitar, is situated at the entrance to the award-winning attraction and will extend the birthday celebrations further into Paul’s 80th birthday year and prolong the spotlight on charity Nordoff Robbins.

The installation visually celebrates the illustrious and ground-breaking career of one of music’s greatest composers, a career is still going strong to this today. Paul McCartney recently completed his well-received ‘Got Back’ tour of North America and is set to be Glastonbury Festival’s oldest ever solo headliner on Saturday 25th June.
