On a Sunday evening 50 years ago, the Beatles made their first TV appearance in America. The Ed Sullivan show drew some 74 million viewers that February 2014 night, and the Western music scene changed forever.

A group of musicians in La Paz is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s arrival in America with a concert Sunday, Dec. 7. The performance is also a tribute to John Lennon, who was shot to death in December 1980, as he was entering his New York apartment. Mark David Chapman is still in prison for that murder.

The concert “Blues Fest por John Lennon y 50th. Aniversario de The Beatles en América” starts at 6 p.m. at Teatro del IMSS, the theatre on Obregón at the corner of Héroes del 47 (near the north end of the Malecón close to Breeze Mart and the windmill, el Molinito). Tickets are 50 pesos and you can get them at the door.

The show features a nine-member band: Duna Conde, Arnold Hirales, Mario Montaño, Roberto Montaño, Gabriel Velázquez, Armando Elizalde, Rubén Baranco, Hugo Ivan González and Ros Oberlyn.
