Reliving The Madison Press Conference:

Friday, September 12, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM.

@ The West End Museum.

The Beatles stayed at Boston’s Hotel Madison, adjacent to North Station and connected to the Garden. Prior to the sold-out concert on September 12, 1964, the group held a press conference at The Madison, which was infamously “crashed” by three college-age friends. Steve Small, Rich Hershenson and Charlie Kimball successfully finagled their way in, snapped photos, asked questions and even shook hands with John, Paul, George and Ringo. Small, Hershenson and Kimball will relive The Madison press conference and share film clips and photos

Later on, Roger Greenawalt will delight us with his ukulele performance of Beatles songs.

The Reception and the Madison Press Conference is part of The Beatles Invade Boston: 50th Anniversary Celebration presented by the West End Museum, a weekend of events celebrating the momentous anniversary, on September 12, 13, and 14.
