Fifty years ago today, The Beatles made their first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Their performance marked the beginning of the British Invasion of music and is considered one of the most important moments in pop music history. After being introduced by Sullivan, The Beatles performed “All My Loving,” “Till There Was You,” and “She Loves You.”
During “She Loves You,” the names of the band members were shown on screen with the words “Sorry girls, he’s married” under John’s name. We’d describe the rest of the Beatles career for you, but we just don’t have that kind of time. Since The Beatles became pretty popular after this performance, here are some rarely seen photos of the band from their early days.
