Pop culture author Garry Berman believes his book "We're Going To See The Beatles!" will entertain and fascinate readers who may have missed it the first time around, and who are eager to see "The Beatles: The Lost Concert" soon to be in theaters.
The new documentary is about the birth of Beatlemania in America and includes complete footage of the Beatles first U.S. concert at the Washington D.C. Coliseum. Mr. Berman's book is filled with firsthand accounts from fans who followed the Beatles across New York from the moment they landed at Kennedy Airport for their historic first visit, and beyond.
We're Going to See the Beatles! is the oral history of Beatlemania as told by over 40 individuals from all across the country who contributed their stories and photos and were caught up in the Beatles hysteria during the 1960s. The contributors reminisce about throwing Beatles parties, trying to sneak into hotels, concert venues, and press conferences to catch a glimpse of the Fab Four, and attending over twenty of the Beatles concerts held throughout the U.S. between 1964 and '66. The Beatles story didn't end there, and neither do the stories by the fans who continued to follow them.
We're Going to See the Beatles! with a foreword written by famous Beatles concert promoter Sid Bernstein, is available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
