On Sunday, Feb. 9, 1964, close to 50% of U.S. television viewers tuned in to the number-one variety show of the era, The Ed Sullivan Show, to see the American debut of a British group called The Beatles. This was the beginning of a cultural phenomenon known as the British invasion.

“The British Invasion — Live on Stage” is a new live concert event that showcases the most popular music from that era. Featuring songs from The Rolling Stones, Dave Clark 5, The Animals, The Kinks and Dusty Springfield, this multi-media show will place the audience front and center of pop culture history.
