The festivities will take place Friday, February 7 through Sunday, February 9 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, with the dates and days of the week corresponding exactly to the dates of the Beatles' 1964 arrival at JFK Airport, and performance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

    And the headliner is?

    British Invasion music star Donovan!

    After meeting the Beatles in 1965, Donovan rapidly became part of their inner circle, regarded as a close friend and musical peer, scoring 14 major worldwide chart hits. In 1968 he accompanied the Beatles on their spiritual quest to India.
