The Beatles: iTunes Debut

Apple is finally the proud new owner of the rights to all of The Beatles’ recorded tracks, making all of their songs available on iTunes. Apple sent out a cryptic message on Nov. 15, saying “Tomorrow is just another day.  That you’ll never forget.”  After decades of fighting for the rights of The Beatles’ music, Apple made history on Tuesday, November 16, 2010.  Now, 40 years after the timeless group disbanded, they are one of the top sellers on iTunes.

Apple had an added a treat for all of us Beatles fanatics, making the 1964 Washington Coliseum Concert available to view.  You can see the video here: Concert

Here is what Apple had to say to commemorate this occasion:

“On February 11, 1964 — just two days after their historic appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show — The Beatles made history again with their first-ever live U.S. concert at the Washington Coliseum. In front of more than 7000 fans, the group performed hit after hit, including “I Saw Her Standing There,” “She Loves You,” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”

To celebrate the release of all 13 of The Beatles’ studio albums on iTunes, we present that pivotal February 11 performance, streamed here in its entirety. And when you buy The Beatles Box Set on iTunes, you get a copy of this concert for your collection.”
