Revisit the beginnings of the magical mystery tour.  

The early years of Beatlemania are captured in this fine art photography exhibition from the photo archives of CBS Television.  Rare and unpublished images of The Beatles "backstage and behind the scenes," are showcased in the exhibition, The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes," magnifying a condensed 1964 timeframe as the Fab Four won new North American audiences and revolutionized rock music at an unprecedented pace.

The Beatles first visited America in February 1964, performing live on the CBS Ed Sullivan Show both in New York at Studio 50 and in Miami Beach, Florida at the historic Deauville Hotel  to promote their new song, I Want to Hold Your Hand. Their first full-fledged tour was a month long trek that took them to 20 US cities and three in Canada.

By 1964, The Beatles were already a phenomenon as musicians and songwriters. Add the visual element, made possible by television, and their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show became a cultural event shared by millions. The Fabs, who opened the show, sang All My Loving, Till There was You, She Loves You, I Saw Her Standing There and I Want to Hold Your Hand. In the few minutes of that first performance, The Beatles showed the world who would direct the future of pop music.

Taken around the Beatles first North American appearance on the CBS Ed Sullivan Show, the images of this exhibition represent the best of photojournalism 1964. Visitors become witness to the rock-star phenomenon begun by The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes.
