Union Square Rock Tour

I would do this activity

Description

Easy
Open booking

In the mid 1960’s,  American pop culture was about to change forever and the center of it was Max’s Kansas City on Park Avenue South just off Union Square.  Andy Warhol once said “Max’s Kansas City is where Pop Art and Pop Life came together.”
See where Iggy Pop cut himself on stage;  where the Velvet Underground recorded a live album;  where Andy Warhol was shot;  where Debbie Harry was a waitress and where the cover for London Calling by the Clash was shot.
After the walking tour you’ll want to enjoy the many great restaurants and bars in the Union Square area and perhaps buy a copy of “London Calling”  at Virgin Mega Store.
