Sunday, July 13, 2014

July has long been a big month for The Fab Four; it's the month when Ringo Starr was born in 1940, when John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met in 1957, and when the group's film A Hard Day's Night debuted in 1964. So if you're looking to share in The Beatles love this summer, take the long and winding road to Vegas. We'll make a day tripper out of you with these top Beatles-inspired attractions.

Originally set to play at the Sahara, Director of Entertainment Stan Irwin strategically decided to move the concerts to the Las Vegas Convention Center due to ticket demand. An estimated 11,000 to 16,000 screaming fans were in attendance, enraptured in Beatlemania. It would also mark the need for larger concert venues, shifting music's association with Vegas indefinitely. Revisit the historical site of The Beatles' concert on your next convention trip. Shuffle through 2 million square feet of space and re-imagine the screaming fans and mop-topped group singing all of your favorites as if it were yesterday.
