February 9, 1964 The Beatles appear live on the Ed Sullivan show

On February 9, 1964 The Beatles appeared live on the Ed Sullivan show to over 73,000 viewers. CBS received 50,000 requests for 728 studio tickets. The New York Times reported that you had better chances of getting into an Ivy League college. The group was paid $10,000.

Summarized from Kiro 7.

Personally, I have never seen The Beatles’s appeal.
