Release Date: TBD

Format(s): CD, DD

The Smithereens are once again returning to one of their biggest influences, The Beatles, in a recreation of their first U.S. concert.

On February 11, 1964, the Beatles played at the Washington Coliseum in Washington, DC. They ran through a quick twelve song set that included such early hits as Please Please Me, She Loves You and I Want to Hold Your Hand to throngs of screaming fans.

The Smithereens play those twelve songs, in the original order, "only louder than the screams, and with less jelly bean throwing!"

The band previously saluted the Fab Four with 2007's Meet the Smithereens!, a track-by-track recreation of Meet the Beatles and 2008's B Sides The Beatles.

Track List:
  • Roll Over Beethoven
  • From Me To You
  • I Saw Her Standing There
  • This Boy
  • All My Loving
  • I Wanna Be Your Man
  • Please Please Me
  • Till There Was You
  • She Loves You
  • I Want To Hold Your Hand
  • Twist and Shout
  • Long Tall Sally
