Outside the Capitol Records tower on Hollywood Boulevard Feb. 9 fans celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Chris Carter of KLOS-FM's “Breakfast With the Beatles” told Beatles Examiner Feb. 10.
“It was a great vibe outside of Capitol Records to celebrate The Fabs' 50th anniversary of coming to America,” he told us. “We even had Ed Sullivan there! The street was packed with Beatles fans both young and old. Lots of cake, pizza and music. Yeah yeah yeah!” You can see pictures from the event in the slideshow.
Those in attendance included John Lennon impersonator Tim Piper and an Ed Sullivan impersonator was also there to add to the festivities, which included guest musicians and singers performing Beatles songs throughout the afternoon event.
Event coordinator Jerry Rubin announced Monday a similar event celebrating the birthday of George Harrison will take place Feb. 25 at the George Harrison Walk of Fame star in the same location at the Capitol Tower.
