Tickets available on August 16th - 50 years from the very day that John Lennon renamed The Quarrymen to The Beatles!
In 1956, a 15-year-old Liverpool schoolboy named John Lennon recruited five of his closest friends to join him in a skiffle and rock 'n' roll group called The Quarrymen.
On July 6th 1957, the group was performing at the annual garden party of the local village church St. Peter's. A friend of John Lennon attended the performance and brought with him another pal. He felt that his two friends should meet. The friend he brought with him was a just-turned-15 lad named Paul McCartney.
John and Paul met. And made an immediate connection over their shared love of the new music coming from America - rock 'n' roll. It was the Big Bang that eventually led to the Beatles.
"That was the day... the day that I met Paul that it started moving..."
- John Lennon (1968)
"I had a group, I was the singer and the leader. I met Paul and I made a decision whether to have him in the group: Was it better to have a guy who was better than the people I had in obviously? Or not? To make the group stronger or let me be stronger? That decision was to let Paul in and make the group stronger."
- John Lennon (1970)
Tickets: $40.00 - $70.00
