The Grammy Museum at LA Live will be hosting Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles’ exhibit’s Los Angeles debut on July 1, 2016. On display on the Museum’s second floor through Sept. 5, 2016, the exhibit features more than 400 pieces of memorabilia, records, rare photographs, tour artifacts, video, articles of clothing, and more.
The band first arrived onto US shores on February 7, 1964, and on February 9th the foursome of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr made their live American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, broadcast from New York City and a record breaking audience of 73 million people.
They made their second appearance on the same show on Sunday, February 16th from the Napoleon Ballroom of the Deauville Hotel in Miami Beach, FL, and in between those two television appearances they played their first official American concert in Washington, DC and New York City’s Carnegie Hall.

(Midwest Music Museum at Mall of America), Miami, Fla. (HistoryMiami), Tulsa, Okla. (Woody Guthrie Center), Austin, Texas (LBJ Presidential Library) and Cleveland, Miss. (GRAMMY Museum Mississippi).
