It was February 7, 1964 when a little known band named The Beatles set foot on American soil for their American tour, cited from History.com.
At the time of their arrival, The Beatles, who was comprised of Paul McCartney, age 21, Ringo Starr, 23, John Lennon, 23, and George Harrison, 20 just made No. 1 on the US charts six days before with the song “I Want To Hold Your Hand”. Their iconic look, with the pudding bowl haircuts, stepped onto JFK Airport tarmac, with about 3,000 screaming fans welcoming them to America.
Two days later, they performed on The Ed Sullivan Show, which was watched by 73 million people (about 40 percent of the US population).
To this day, The Beatles still live on and continue to inspire and resonate with generations to come.
