September 1964: Memories of The Beatles in Dallas



Back in 2014, we remembered the 50th anniversary of "Beatlemania" in the US and Dallas was no exception.

On September 18, 1964, The Beatles played in Dallas, as Robert Willonski reports in The Dallas Morning News:
"Jan Howes, who was 10 at the time but already deeply in love with The Beatles, did not see the band when it played Dallas on Sept. 18, 1964, but her father did.It was, after all, his job: John Mazziotta was chief photographer at the Dallas Times Herald, assigned to cover John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr from Love Field arrival to Memorial Auditorium blastoff."
Mr Mazziotta's photos will go on auction soon and the world will get to see them!  It's a cool Dallas memory of the one and only visit by The Beatles to Dallas.
