The Beatles in DC, February 11th, 1964 at the Washington Coliseum


After the Beatles did the Ed Sullivan in New York on February 9, 1964, they performed two live concerts, one of which was here in DC, at the old Washington Coliseum at 3rd and M Streets NE, on February 11th.  The group arrived by train and gave a brief press conference.  The show…tickets were $2.00 sold-out, over-capacity crowd of about 8,000 fans.  Afterwards they attended a ball at the British Embassy, where (Depending upon who tells the tale) an unidentified woman cut off a lock of Ringo’s hair without his permission.  The group then returned to their rooms at the Shoreham Hotel.
