Following their triumphant introduction on the Ed Sullivan show, The Beatles’ very first concert in North America began at 8:31 p.m. on February 11, 1964 at the Washington Coliseum at 3rd & M Streets, NE. The sell-out show was attended by 8,092 screaming fans. This concert began the ‘British Invasion’ at the dawn of one of America’s most tumultuous eras, and would influence our collective culture for years to come.
50 years later, on Tuesday, February 11, 2014, the DC Preservation League and Douglas Development Corporation will commemorate this iconic event at the landmark Uline Arena (later known as the Washington Coliseum) with a tribute performance by the nationally renowned band – Beatlemania Now.
Proceeds from the event benefit the advocacy and education programs of the DC Preservation League to preserve and protect the historic resources of our nation’s capital.
