Beatlemania To Return In 2014
December 12, 2013

The Beatles
The year 2014 will mark the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first trip to America. Therefore, Capitol Records will celebrate Beatlemania all over again with a box set called The U.S. Albums. The set will be released on January 21 in North America and will include reissues of all 13 of the band's American albums, which often had different track lists, song mixes, titles, and art than their U.K. counterparts. The collection begins with 1964's Meet the Beatles! and concludes with 1970's Hey Jude. The 13 CDs come with replicated album art as well as a 64-page booklet. For a limited time, the CDs also will be available for individual sale.

A few weeks after the release of the box set will come a two-hour television special titled The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles, which will air on CBS on February 9 at 8 p.m. The date marks the exact 50-year anniversary of the band's legendary five-song performance on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Furthermore, The Beatles will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy at next year's event. A special invitation-only ceremony will be held during Grammy week on Saturday, January 25, and a formal acknowledgment will be made during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards telecast, which will be held in Los Angeles on January 26 and broadcast live on CBS. The Beatles were nominated for 25 Grammys between a Record of the Year nod in 1964 for "I Want to Hold Your Hand" to a 1997 win for The Beatles Anthology (for Best Music Video Long Form). The band has won eight Grammys, including Best New Artist in 1965 and Album of the Year for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1968. The Fab Four will be honored for Lifetime Achievement
alongside Clifton Chenier, the Isley Brothers, Kraftwerk, Kris Kristofferson, Armando Manzanero, and Maud Powell.
