Beatles Day in New Orleans
On September 16, 1964, the Beatles performed in New Orleans’ City Park. The city already played a large role in the music of the Fab Four, with John Lennon first hearing a New Orleans R&B record in 1956.
This fun and meticulous look at the unique relationship between the Beatles and America’s most important musical city includes chapters on the local teen reporters who interviewed the Beatles and covered the show, the band’s stay at a motel far from downtown, the press conference where the mayor presented the group with the keys to the city, the present-day status of places the musicians visited, and much more.
