Beatles Day celebrates The Beatles' triumphant return to Liverpool on 10 July 1964 from their US tour, just in time for the premiere of their film A Hard Day's Night. This day is considered one of the landmarks in their rise to fame, and, since 2008, its anniversary has been celebrated as Beatles Day in both Liverpool and Hamburg, the cities where the Fab Four laid the foundations for their stardom. Others choose to celebrate "Beatles Day" on 27 February in the USA to mark the beauty and peacefulness of the Fab Four's music in time for Spring.
