January 11th in the History of the Beatles

This is a daily chronological account of The Beatles - An interesting factoid or two. Since we also play selections on our show from the solo members dates of interest for them are included.

 11th in 1964 - The Beatles play their first concert in the U.S. at the Washington Coliseum in the nation's capitol. After the show they attend a charity masked ball in their honor at the British Embassy.  In 1965 - Ringo Starr marries Maureen Cox in London. George, John & Cynthia Lennon attend but Paul, on vacation in Tunisia, does not.  In 1970 - The Magic Christian, co-starring Ringo and Peter Sellers opens in NYC on the same day as the soundtrack album, featuring Badfinger's Paul McCartney-written-and-produced "Come and Get It."
