The Beatles 1st Concert Comes To The Big Screen
….and you can see it! Yea – and you don’t have to sit cross-legged in front of your little black and white TV!
If you’re a Beatles fan like me, the new documentary ‘The Beatles: the Lost Concert,’ explores the days of Beatlemania in America through interviews with various stars, (including Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry), and those responsible for taking the gamble and bringing the ‘Fab Four’ to the states. I’m there!!!
This 92-minute film includes The Beatles entire performance at Washington Coliseum in DC, on February 11, 1964. Apparently, a month afterwards, the show received a special closed-circuit broadcast to theaters across the country, and that’s the last time the performance was made available for public viewing.
