(Gibson) New York City will host a four-day event this February in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' famed first trip to the U.S. The event, dubbed NYC Beatles 50, is set for Feb. 6 through 9 and will feature a collection of Beatles-friendly tribute shows at different venues around New York City.

A few of the planned shows include a star-studded concert, called "America Celebrates The Beatles, All-Star Concert," on Feb. 7 at the Apollo Theater in Harlem and a two-day event, named the "Across the Universe" Beatles Music Festival, on Feb. 8 and 9 that will feature an all-day series of performances by a variety of artists.
