From The Beatles Breakfast Jam History Book this week in 1963, The Beatles started their first overseas tour with a stop in Sweden where they performed two shows in Karlstad, Sweden. Swedish newspaper critics weren’t impressed by the band. One writer had this to say “The Beatles should be grateful to their screaming fans for drowning out the group's terrible performance, adding that The Beatles "were of no musical importance whatsoever”. Once again the critics where proved wrong.

Join me weekday mornings at 6:30 for The Beatles Breakfast Jam.

Take a look at this, The Beatles on Swedish TV in 1963, I love how it appears the host is having to kill time while the boys get on stage to perform.
