‘’BEATLEMANIA’’ ARRIVED ON THIS DAY IN 1964

See the source image

On February 7, 1964, Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 from London Heathrow lands at New York’s Kennedy Airport—and “Beatlemania” arrived. It was the first visit to the United States by the Beatles, a
British rock-and-roll quartet that had just scored its first No. 1 U.S. 
hit six days before with “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”

At Kennedy, the “Fab Four”—dressed in mod suits and sporting their trademark pudding bowl haircuts—were greeted by 3,000 screaming
fans who caused a near riot when the boys stepped off their plane
and onto American soil.


Two days later, Paul McCartney, age 21, Ringo Starr, 23, John
Lennon
, 23, and George Harrison, 20, made their first appearance
on the Ed Sullivan Show.
