Leave a comment

Whether you were alive in February 1964 or not, every Beatles fan knows the significance of the group’s first visit to America. All the entertainment forces collided at once to make the second week in February the most impactful week in the history of rock and roll, and of course, The Beatles’ career.

It was 58 years ago at this time that the U.S. was preparing for The Beatles arrival in America! During the month of January 1964, “The Beatles Are Coming” campaign was spreading like wildfire in anticipation of this group of four lads from Liverpool coming to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964. It was a 14-day visit that changed history, changed the world and changed the lives of so many music fans.

But too often, these monumental two weeks get compacted into a single video clip or paragraph in the story of The Beatles. Now it’s time to go back and re-live the Beatles visit, day by day, hour by hour. Go behind the scenes to see what was happening from The Beatles’ point of view.

No one could predict the extraordinary impact The Beatles would have during this first visit. In fact, The Beatles were so busy and riding high in England and Europe that they barely had time to think about their trip to the U.S.

Watch here as John Lennon is asked in late December 1963 about The Beatles’ upcoming trip to America:

“The course was perfect! It was very insightful and drives passion about The Beatles!” – Student, 1963 Beatles History course

The course “The Early Beatles” was very informative even for a first-generation Beatle fan. I learned some things that I didn’t know before about the Beatles. I would recommend this course to all Beatle fans and others who are interested in music.

On February 9, 1964, when I was 11 years old I saw The Beatles perform on TV during The Ed Sullivan Show and I instantly became a fan of their music. This Daytrippin’ course has enhanced my enjoyment of the music of The Beatles.
– Brian Bingham, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Daytrippin’ publisher and course instructor Trina Young is excited to offer Beatles fans a chance to share ideas and learn fascinating discoveries online for much less than it would cost to take a college class.
