The Beatles: The Lost Concert is a new documentary recounting the whole story of the birth of Beatlemania in America. From an initial phone call from US promoter Sid Bernstein to the manager of a then-unknown band from the UK, all the way thorough to their first-ever historic and triumphant U.S. concert at the Washington, D.C. Coliseum. Through rare archival footage and new interviews with some of the people who were there, and chock full of memorabilia, archival footage and artifacts it details how The Beatles were first brought to America, their struggle to get a U.S. record contract and airplay, how their first concert was booked and all the incredible events of that historic day in February when the Fab Four took a train from New York to Washington, D.C. to perform a full concert in front of an American audience for the first time.
The whole story unfolds through new interviews with celebrities, historically important figures, journalists, DJs, photographers, historians, and fans who attended the original 1964 concert - plus historic archival footage.
Unseen on the big screen for over 45 years, the original concert footage has been painstakingly restored and remastered. An incredible series of photographs recently discovered from a local photographer, Mike Mitchell, show The Beatles arriving at Union Station in D.C., at the press conference held at the Coliseum that afternoon, and at the concert itself.
