4EVER4 Beatles Exhibit and Historical Presentation

August 20-26

Location: 201 W. National Street, West Chicago

On August 18, 1962, four long-haired musicians in Liverpool, England, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, played together for the first time, captivating the attention of the world and the affection of our hearts.

Republic Bank of Chicago is pleased to present 4EVER4, a photo exhibition celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Beatles. The exhibit has nearly 100 photographs of the Beatles in concert, their antics off stage, record albums, their movies, concert posters, ticket stubs, contracts, touring schedules, and other historical photos.

In total, the Beatles, John, Paul, George, and Ringo were together as the Beatles, as we know them, for 7 years, 7 months, and 24 days for a total of only 2,793 days. Within those 2,793 days, the Beatles began transforming our culture, dress, music, and ourselves starting in 1962 and continue to do so in 2022. We all have 1 favorite Beatle. Yet, we’ll always remember the 4 Beatles together forever or 4EVER4.
