The two shows were the only time in history all four members of The Beatles played in Las Vegas together.
On hand will be Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins, LVCVA Board of Directors Chairman Rossi Ralenkotter, LVCVA President/CEO, who attended both concerts, and Chuck Gunderson, author of “Some Fun Tonight! The Backstage Story of How The Beatles Rocked America: The Historic Tours of 1964-1966”.

From screaming teens and security guards to publicity agents and news reporters, the News Bureau exhibit features interviews and photographs from the people who experienced the commotion on Aug. 20, 1964. The multi-media exhibition will be on display in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center through Oct. 27.
