Below is information about some upcoming events in New York City from Trina Yannicos, editor of Daytrippin' Magazine:
We are now less than a month away from the 40th anniversary of the Beatles coming to America!!! Lots of events are being planned in New York City in the coming month to celebrate this historic occasion.
The first event has just been announced. It is a free lunchtime event next Friday (January 16th) in New York City. It takes place at the Hard Rock Cafe. 12 noon - 2:00pm. Friday January 16th is the exact 40th anniversary of the day that "I Want To Hold Your Hand" was officially certified #1 in the US.
It is also the official publication date of the new book "THE BEATLES ARE COMING! The Birth Of Beatlemania In America" - written by our friend Bruce Spizer. Bruce will be giving an illustrated talk at the celebration event (at 1pm) which will be followed by a book-signing. Full details of the event on the Fab 40! website http://www.thefab40.com/event.html
The Fab 40! committee, organized by former Daytrippin' columnist, Martin Lewis, has started a website to provide information about some of the many events and projects coming up to celebrate the anniversary.
