Relive The Beatles First U.S. Concert In 1964 [VIDEO]
Here’s an account of The Beatles first U.S. live concert, according to Wikipedia:
“Two days after the television appearance, on 11 February 1964, the Beatles’ first US concert took place, at Washington Coliseum, a sports arena in Washington, D.C. The concert was attended by eight thousand fans. The Beatles performed on a central stage in the arena, with the audience on all sides, and there were regular pauses to enable the band to turn their equipment around and perform facing in another direction.”
Often, The Beatles finished their early performances with “Twist And Shout”, as John Lennon had no voice left after singing it.
