    I was there and could not hear a thing. The girls screamed the whole show and the only thing on stage was The Beatles to one side in boxes on top of each other, each box having a letter.

      I there there too and I had the screaming girls right beside me. I seeem to remember the Beatles coming on stage and just sitting strumming their guitars because every time they started to sing the screaming would start. Despite that, it remains one of my great memories

    My granddad was there and he said he couldn’t hear a thing, and he was in the cheap seats, I would give anything to have been there with him. but im only 16 now lol, so no way that could have happened sadly.

    Do any of you who have been to this concert remember any details as to how We Can Work It Out was performed? Was John playing harmonium? Was he playing a different type of keyboard? Any bit of information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
