The Beatles and Las Vegas! It’s been 50 years and the LVCVA dedicated a plaque to the event and the venue todayIra Sternberg : August 12, 2014 4:59 pm : Talk About Las Vegas
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ only performance in the “Entertainment Capital of the World” by unveiling a permanent plaque today on the site of the two sold-out 1964 concerts in the Las Vegas Convention Center. The LVCVA also debuted “The Beatles: Las Vegas 1964,” a multi-media exhibit from the Las Vegas News Bureau, featuring the Fab Four’s visit from the fans’ perspectives.
Several hundred people, many of whom were at one or both shows on August 20, 1964, attended the day’s celebration, which included a surprise appearance by cast members from The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil at The Mirage. Clark County Commissioner and LVCVA Board Chairman Tom Collins presented a proclamation declaring August 20, 2014, “The Beatles Day in Southern Nevada.”
The plaque, located in the grand lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center near the N1 Hall entrance, marks the approximate spot of the where the stage was set for the 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows. It features a photo of The Beatles arriving at what was then known as McCarran Field and a replica of LVCVA President/CEO Rossi Ralenkotter’s ticket to the second show.
The multi-media exhibition is open to the public and will be on display in the grand lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center through Oct. 27.
