Last night the Arctic Monkeys joined in with the anniversary celebrations of the Beatles US invasion playing ‘All My Loving’ to the crowd in Madison Square Garden as part of their encore.
“All My Loving,” was one of the three songs the Beatles played on their historic Ed Sullivan Show appearance on February 9th, 1964.
The frontman said to the crowd:
“So apparently almost to the day, I believe, it’s 50 years since Ed Sullivan first brought the Beatles to the United States,”
“We thought, seeing as we’re in New York, as they were all those years ago, that we’d play a little Beatles song for you tonight. Apparently one in three Americans actually watched that performance, so if we’re lucky one or three Americans might watch this YouTube video.”
