Attention Beatles Fans! Enter the 'Share Your Memories Contest'

Yesterday & Today logo-resized for web

This contest has officially ended, but AARP members can purchase discounted tickets at the link below.

On February 11, 1964, an English quartet by the name of The Beatles stepped onto a US stage for the first time in Washington, DC. The lights went down, and the crowd noise went up. The rest, as they say, is history.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first coming to America, an historic event titled " Yesterday & Today: The 50th Anniversary Celebration" will recreate that first-ever Beatles concert in North America on February 11! Taking place at the same venue (Uline Arena, formerly the Washington Coliseum, in Washington, DC) and same time as the original concert, the group Beatlemania Now will play the exact set list as The Beatles first did in 1964. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event that is being presented by the DC Preservation League and Douglas Development.

AARP is the official social media sponsor of "Yesterday and Today," and as such, all AARP members will receive 15 percent off of their ticket price when they enter the code “AARP” at time of purchase!
