I haven't, but one of my uncles told me he almost did.. They came to Indianapolis in '64. If I had a choice, I would've been at the Revolution / Hey Jude performance, the rooftop, or one of the '66 concerts.

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

I saw 'Beatlemania in '78 or '79, and the current incarnation 'Rain' in 2011.  Not as good as the original, but they'll have to do.

 

Ringo usually plays one of the casinos here just North of Toronto once a year, so I really need to go see him next time around.

I can never afford the ridiculous prices to see Paul in Toronto.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Dave Clark 5 were thought to be next big thing and the Beatles on the slide when Glad All Over came out and replaced She Loves You(?) at #1 (completely different song to the Glad All Over The Beatles covered and on Live At The BBC)

My mum saw them twice in 1963. I think she got to touch George Harrison's foot. I got her to leave her memories as comments on these pages:

If anyone else saw The Beatles live, please add your memories to the relevant page in the history section. The more details the better.

Yeah, I've read that before and always found it absurd. SOMETHING had to replace "She Loves You" at the top eventually; it could've been "The Singing Nun: Next Big Thing!" Music papers trying to make up a story out of nothing. (Almost as big a non-issue as 'Penny Lane'/'SFF' doesn't make #1, peaks at #2 OH NOES)

It was hyped as Liverpool v Manchester or something - the 'New Sound'.

 

Were the Dave Clark Five in Catch Me If You Can in 1965? I cant think of any other song they had apart from Glad All Over which is incredibly irritating.

 

(No idea why its displaying in italics as it isnt set that way)

Ah yes, "The Totenham Sound!!"

I think "Glad All Over" is awright. "Bits And Pieces" is their best song.

Those are great comments by your mum. Thanks for pointing them out to us. I love reading stories written by those who actually saw them live.

Thanks for your story, jimliston.apple01mal-evans

Here is their set list according to Wikipedia:

  1. "Rock and Roll Music" (John Lennon)
  2. "She's a Woman" (Paul McCartney)
  3. "If I Needed Someone" (George Harrison) - the first (and only) Harrison composition the group performed live
  4. "Day Tripper" (Lennon and McCartney)
  5. "Baby's in Black" (Lennon and McCartney)
  6. "I Feel Fine" (Lennon)
  7. "Yesterday" (McCartney) - performed with all four Beatles, rather than the one guitar-string quartet arrangement by which the song was recorded, and in G major, not in F major
  8. "I Wanna Be Your Man" (Ringo Starr)
  9. "Nowhere Man" (Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison)
  10. "Paperback Writer" (McCartney) - the newest song ever performed by The Beatles in their touring
  11. "Long Tall Sally" (McCartney)
