The Beatles Arrive in America

On February 7th, 1964, The Beatles arrived in America for the first time, kicking off Beatlemania. The band had waited to come to the U.S. until they had a hit single there, and after “I Want to Hold Your Hand” reached #1, their concert tour was set. After The Beatles landed at JFK Airport in New York, they held a now-famous press conference.
