show: 8 p.m.
Experience a Beatles concert the way it was performed over 50 years ago… The Show:  “1964” focuses on the quintessential moment in history, when The Beatles actually played before a live audience. The Beatles toured the world in the early 1960s, but now only a precious few remain who actually saw them live. For those that never saw The Beatles LIVE and always wanted to know what it must
have been like, this is as close as anyone could possibly get to feeling the magic.
