The Beatle’s first Ed Sullivan Show.

This was the date of The Beatle’s records breaking first live appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, at Studio 50 in New York City.
“It was a great feeling because we were booked to go to America directly after the Paris trip, so it was handy to have a Number One. We’d already been hired by Ed Sullivan, so if it had been a Number Two of Number Ten, we’d have gone anyway. But it was nice to have a Number One.” - George Harrison, quote source- “History with the Beatles” by Bradford E. Loker
