Global Beatles Day in The Villages FL
Music lovers worldwide come together to celebrate Global Beatles Day on June 25. The occasion pays tribute to The Beatles and the impact they had on both music history and pop culture.
Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison first recorded together as a foursome in 1962 — after producer George Martin fired original drummer Pete Best. The band’s work throughout the decade remains unparalleled in pop music.
HISTORY OF GLOBAL BEATLES DAY
The Beatles were a rock band that formed in 1960. After the original drummer Pete Best was fired, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr went on to be known as the “Fab Four”. The initial beginnings of the band were actually happening in 1957, but they went through a few name changes before settling on The Beatles in 1960.
A bunch of smash hits later they were performing All You Need Is Love to 400 million people via the first global live TV link, with the broadcast reaching 26 different countries simultaneously. This huge moment in pop culture history took place on June 25, 1967, and is the reason why Global Beatles Day is celebrated on June 25 every year.
Global Beatles Day was founded in 2009, and we use it to celebrate not only their music but also their message of peace and love.
