In 1964, the Bea­tles made their live U.S. tele­vi­sion de­but on The Ed Sul­li­van Show. I Want to Hold Your Hand could barely be heard over the screams from the au­di­ence, who were also treated to All My Lov­ing, Till There Was You, She Loves You and I Saw Her Stand­ing There. There were 50,000 re­quests for the 725 avail­able seats. The Bea­tles ap­peared on the show again a week later. Each pro­gram was watched by an es­ti­mated 70 mil­lion peo­ple.
