An exhibition documenting the early impact of The Beatles in America will open on April 4 at Liverpool’s historic Albert Dock.
Titled “The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes”, the images were taken by award-winning CBS and Life photographer, Bill Eppridge.
The exhibition uses pictures from around the time of The Beatles’ first North American appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show; a milestone in American pop culture and a performance which marked the beginning of the so called ‘British Invasion’.
“I shot photographs, they shot quips, and history shot us all into the record books,” recalls Eppridge.
The exhibition has previously been shown in Washington’s world famous Smithsonian Institute, where it attracted over 3 million visitors.
The exhibition runs from April 4 to August 15.
