Pop veteran Tommy Roe is set to relive the night he supported The Beatles at their very first concert in America by recreating the event for its 50th anniversary with a Fab Four tribute band.
The Dizzy singer, 71, opened for the Let It Be hitmakers at their iconic Washington Coliseum show in Washington, D.C. on 11 February, 1964, two days after the great Brits made their U.S. performing debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Now Roe has signed up to take part in a re-enactment of the landmark gig to celebrate the historic occasion next month (Feb14).
He will take the stage for an acoustic set at the same venue on 11 February (14), before cover band Beatlemania Now perform the same setlist Paul MCCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison delighted fans with five decades ago.
Photos of the original concert, snapped by a young Mike Mitchell, will also be exhibited at the event, which has been put together by officials at the DC Preservation League and Douglas Development Corporation. Proceeds from photos sold at the bash will benefit the DC Preservation League, which aims to preserve and protect the history and environment of the area.
