This weekend marks the 45th anniversay of The Beatles performance at Dodger Stadium. It would be the second to last official concert ( Not counting the Let It Be rooftop gig ) they would ever perform, their swan song coming the next evening at Candlestick Park. It was during this tour that John Lennon’s remarks about The Beatles and their popularity over Jesus made huge headlines.
To this day, I still laugh at those who went on this bonfire. I mean, really, John gives his god honest opinion, no pun intended, and these so-called religious freaks burn him in effigy. WOW, I’m sure God really appreciated his name being linked to these so-called bible thumpers.
The Fab Four performing in front of over 45,000 screaming fans at Chavez Ravine, 8/28/1966. All those years of touring in front of screaming fans must have turned into plenty of HARD DAYS NIGHTS. Oh yeah, check out the stands in the background, it’s amazing how she looks so much the same today as she did in 1966
To honor the occasion, Beatles tunes will be played throughout the weekend series with the Rockies, as well as this Tuesday, 8/30 , when performers from Love will be here for a pre-game performance as well. A Splendid Time Is Guaranteed for All…. THE BEATLES ARE MORE POPULAR THAN….Frank McCourt, YEAH YEAH YEAH… what did you think I was gonna say ?
NO SUCH THING AS A STUPID QUESTION ?
Earlier this week Dodger season ticket holders we’re asked to rate Vin Scully ? There’s another one to chalk up in the reasons why FRANK MUST GO list. Rate Vin Scully ? REALLY FRANK ?
