“The British are coming! The British are coming!”

That was the warning the brave and legendary Paul Revere announced as he galloped through the streets of Concord over three hundred years ago warning the populace about the threat of a British invasion.

Now the Brits have had their sweet revenge. Sixty years ago an unlikely quartet from England—Liverpool to be precise—invaded America—and conquered the nation in what turned out to be a bloodless revolution.

We are talking, of course, about 1964, the historic year that John Paul George and Ringo showed up in America—and without spilling a drop of blood were triumphant as they re-wrote rock and roll history. And in doing so, thousands of young women—from sea to shining sea– fell at their feet as the Beatles offered to hold their hand!

Ventura “historian” and author Ivor Davis had an exclusive front row seat as this Invasion exploded. Embedded with the raiders, he will reveal behind the scenes details of this astonishing coup at the Museum of Ventura County, on Thursday Jan 25 at 6 pm.

Davis will introduce his new 60th anniversary “Beatles and Me On Tour” book—and promises to reveal all– despite the consequences. The true story behind the story.

How the USA surrendered to these four lads from Britain, without a single shot being fired!
