Gamble to Present Paper on Historic Site of Beatles’ First U.S. Concert
The paper will focus on the former Uline Arena’s colorful history as a Washington, D.C., sports, concert, and circus arena which hosted the first live U.S. concert by the Beatles in 1964, following their appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Gamble’s paper will also reference the exciting new possibilities for the building’s proposed preservation and rehabilitation as a mixed-use facility in Northeast Washington.
A circus historian and author, Gamble first attended the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the arena in 1962. Decades later, during his daily rail commute from Frederick, MD, to The George Washington University prior to joining the Bethany staff, he would pass the building, located alongside tracks near Washington’s Union Station; the arena was then being used as an indoor parking lot.
