The Fab Four's Australian Connections

John, Paul, George and Ringo – The Beatles – have held a place in the hearts of Australian music fans for decades.

The level of excitement and hysteria that came with Beatlemania, particularly when The Beatles visited Australia in 1964, was unprecedented and the images and newsreels of screaming fans devoted to The Fab Four are well documented.

Lesser known are the stories of some Australians who had the opportunity to work with The Beatles during their rise to fame and in their heyday.

We have included some of those stories in this collection alongside sights and sounds detailing the chaos and commotion of the band's 1964 tour.
