When We Was Fab

Inside the Beatles Australasian Tour 1964

by Greg Armstrong & Andy Neill

June 2024 will mark the 60th anniversary of the Beatles historic - and hysterical - visit to Australasia. The importance of the tour remains deeply significant, not only in the memories of baby boomers who lived through it, but also to today's millennials who wish they had. The Beatles Australasian tour is continually celebrated as a major social landmark for both countries, a huge and lasting step in the advancing development of youth culture, and a major highlight of the Beatles' remarkable career. When We Was Fab: Inside The Beatles Australasian Tour 1964 is the definitive and highly illustrated (with many previously unseen photographs) account of this extraordinary tour by the world's most creative and influential musical force; the key moment in the coming of age of Australian and New Zealand youth as they embraced the cultural explosion of the 1960s.
