It was just one concert but with a longer interval.


Why did Paul sing “bald headed Sally” instead of ‘Long Tall Sally ‘ when The Beatles would play it live?

After receiving increased criticism for John’s occasional “crip” acts, the remorseful Beatles became more respectful of the disabled community, and “Bald Headed Sally!” was an affectionate shout-out to the unfortunate teenage victims of alopecia amongst the adoring crowd; and when Paul sang that verse, the afflicted girls in the audience would momentarily remove their Beatle wigs and shake them vigorously, proudly displaying their scalp. 

What’s so funny about “…your funny papers”?
