Can you picture yourself at the Ed Sullivan Theater?

It was 9 February 1964 when The Beatles stepped on the multi-arrowed stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater and knocked out America. Now, thanks to the upcoming The Beatles: Rock Band, you can do the same.

Below is a larger photo of the incredible recreation of that most iconic backdrop.

Drool if you must, we totally understand.

Are we pre-ordering this baby? Yeah, yeah, yeah!
