The Beatles left the United Kingdom on February 7, 1964, with an estimated four thousand fans gathered at London's Heathrow Airport, waving and screaming as the aircraft took off. At New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport, they were greeted by another vociferous crowd, estimated at about three thousand people.
The Beatles gave their first live US television performance two days later on The Ed Sullivan Show, watched by approximately 74 million viewers—over 40 percent of the American population. The band appeared on the weekly Ed Sullivan Show a second time, before returning to the UK on February 22nd.
A number of other UK acts subsequently made their own American debuts, successfully touring over the next three years in what was termed the British Invasion.
Did you know?
- The Beatles song “Martha My Dear” was written by Paul McCartney about his sheepdog Martha.
- After Paul's song, "Penny Lane" became a Beatles hit, the street signs for the actual Penny Lane in Liverpool disappeared with such regularity (as they did on the real Abbey Road), that the town reverted to simply painting 'Penny Lane' on the buildings, rather than have street signs.
