Approximately 73 million viewers tuned in
breaking television viewing records and making
music history not to mention fashion history.
Beatlemania began when the first chord to “All
My Lovin” was played, followed by “Till There
Was You” and “She Loves You”.

“A lot of people’s fathers had wanted to turn us off.
They told their kids, ‘Don’t be fooled, they’re wearing
wigs. But a lot of mothers and children made them
keep it on.”. – Paul McCartney

The celebration in Hollywood took place
at Capitol Records. Special guest was
Ed Sullivan impersonator Michael Sherman.

This was the youngest fan at the celebration. Her
name is Sage, she won a slice of toast from Ed
Sullivan for answering the a trivia question. The
