The Beatles are the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed band in the history of popular music.

Estimated by EMI, The Beatles have sold over one billion discs and tapes worldwide.

Being the clear leaders of the so-called British Invasion (other acts include, for example, The Kinks, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Cream, The Yardbirds, and Dusty Springfield), they took America by storm. With their catchy rock n roll-infused pop, there was hysteria everywhere they went.

On the 29th of August, 1966, The Beatles played their last live show. It was held at the Candlestick Park in San Fransisco, U.S. Performing with not much more than a Vox AC30 each, it has famously become a landmark.

The Fab Four had at this point had enough of not hearing themselves over all the screaming fans, and the saying goes that modern touring was invented fifteen minutes after this show. After all, necessity is the mother of invention.

Among The Beatles’ tunes, you’ll find A Hard Days Night, She Loves You, Help, Let It Be, Blackbird, A Day In The Life, Michelle, Back In The U.S.S.R., Live And Let Die, Here Comes The Sun, Twist And Shout, Get Back, Yesterday, Come Together, Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude, Don’t Let Me Down, With A Little Help From My Friends and Strawberry Fields.
