    I remember going to see this concert with my sister ( from Newport by train),,it was the 6 .30 pm show, I remember Mary Wells singing ‘My Guy” The beatles opened with ‘twist and shout’,,they were were dressed in light grey ‘beatle jackets’ near the end of the song, John Lennon took his tie off and threw it into the front row !,,,,It was a loud, crazy night. I still have the ticket stub, and one from the Bob Dylan 1966 show !
