London, April 26 : Recently discovered footage of the Beatles' first ever full American concert, that lost for 48 years, is to be shown at US cinemas next month.
The entire performance, recorded at DC's Washington Coliseum on February 11, 1964, will be screened as part of 92-minute documentary The Beatles: The Lost Concert.
The film, which includes an interview with Chuck Berry, premieres in New York''s Ziegfield Theater on 6 May.
It will then be screened in theatres across America on 17 and 22 May.
The first part of the film focuses on the rise of Beatlemania in the United States and contains commentary from Berry, Mark Ronson, Aerosmith pair Steven Tyler and Joe Perry and Albert Hammond Jr and Nick Valensi from The Strokes, the BBC reported.
It is followed by the 12-song set, which was originally broadcast to two million cinema-goers across America in March 1964, a month after it was recorded.
The footage then disappeared, but Screenvision, who are behind the new movie, say the original master tapes have been restored and remastered. (ANI)
