Press conferences

San Francisco, 1964 (photo form the book "The Beatles are Coming!")

Any idea how jealous I am of these girls!?!?!

Detroit, MI 1964 (notice George checking out the girl!)

Toronto, Canada 1964

Jacksonville, FL 1964 (this is one of my favorites)

Arriving for the NYC press conference 1965

Atlanta, Georgia Press conference 1965

Minneapolis press conference 1965

I am obsessed with Beatles press conferences. My dream is to write a book about them (which I am actively working on). So if anyone who reads this blog has ever been to a Beatles press conference and has stories and /or photos to share, please contact me! I would love to have your account for my book.

I could go on and on about why I love the Beatles press conferences. But instead I will remind you that many Beatle fans got into the press conferences. They either snuck in to the press conference, were allowed in due to being part of a local fan club or the ever popular Datebook magazine press card.

All of the photos in this post are from the 1964 and 1965 North American Tours.

  1. sounds so cool, I've always wanted like, a DVD collection of press conference footage, there are so many great moments and great fashion.
