Beatlemania Now Reenacts Historic Performance at Washington Coliseum

Following their triumphant debut on the Ed Sullivan show on February 9, 1964, the Beatles’ very first concert in America took place at 8:31 PM on Tuesday, February 11, at the Washington Coliseum at 3rd & M Streets, NE.

On that date and time 50 years later, John, Paul, George and Ringo’s landmark concert was reenacted — with the same playlist replicated by tribute band, Beatlemania Now — presented by the DC Preservation League and Douglas Development Corporation.

A short historic documentary featuring the history of The Washington Coliseum/Uline Arena preceded the performance.
