Description by OLDIES.com:
In 1964, the Beatles invaded America. Thirty-two shows in 25 cities in 31 days. Record-smashing attendance. Unimaginable fan reactions. It was the first major rock-and-roll concert tour ever. It was the beginning of a revolution.
Ticket to Ride tells this story like it's never been told before. It is the story of an extraordinary journey of four young men from uncertainty to timeless legacy. It is also a story about the generation that grew along with them, from the innocence of the early sixties to the turbulent years later, when issues of race and war shattered the nation. Come along as the Beatles traverse the United States and Canada, followed closely by an insatiable media and frenzied fan base whose creative attempts to get close range from hilarious to terrifying.
An insider?s look at the world?s first major rock-and-roll tour, Ticket to Ride tells the Beatles? story like it?s never been told before.
? Includes a CD featuring an hour of Kane?s rare interviews with the Beatles
? Features a foreword by Dick Clark
