Beatlemania is born

Today 50 years ago, on 7 October 1963, the term "Beatlemania" was first used by Andi Lothian, a Scottish concert promoter who used the phrase when talking to a reporter at the Caird Hall Beatles Concert.

The first time the term was printed in a newspaper, was a couple days later on 15 October 1963 in the Daily Mirror where the previous day's Beatles concert in Cheltenham was discussed.
