This week we celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles‘ first album to be released stateside. The album, simply called Introducing … The Beatles, was released on January 10, 1964. 1964 was a year of firsts for the boys—John, Paul, Ringo and George—with their first visit to the U.S. and appearance on the The Ed Sullivan Show in February; their first world tour kicking off in June; followed by a U.S. tour in August; and the history making feat, being the first and only band to secure The Billboard Hot 100‘s top five slots in April.
Let’s take a peek at what went down during the band’s first visit to the U.S. with this snapshot of 11 photos here:
