What are some of the best live performances The Beatles ever did? I'm Down at Shea Stadium was pretty good.

That's I Want To Hold Your Hand on the Morcambe & Wise show in 1964

.

And that's She Loves You, live in Melbourne!

Post any clips you think are good

Good choice. I love that song in LiB.

 

The sound quality might not be that good, but the performance is awesome. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Not an incredible performance, but catches the Beatles before they stopped touring which is quite interesting.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Definitely "I'm Down" at Shea. Before I saw that video, I didn't even like the song that much. 

The video changed my mind. 

 

I also enjoyed watching "Yesterday" at the Budokan. It was really different. 

 

Basically anything at Shea. "A Hard Day's Night" was really different than the album version. (John's voice.) 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Yep – 'I'm Down' at Shea is my single most favourite bit of film / performance of The Beatles. The sheer fun John is having with George playing alongside him is magical and Paul just stands there, belting it out with his Hofner waving about…..and sweat pouring off his brow!

The live 'Baby's In Black' from Anthology comes in second with the third being 'She Loves You' from The Hollywood Bowl concert – John's voice is just so good on that.
