Yeah, someone threw a firecracker at the matinee. Here's what Tony Barrow had to say about the incident: "[E]verybody, all of us at the side of the stage, including the three Beatles on stage, all looked immediately at John Lennon. We would not at that moment have been surprised to see that guy go down. John had half-heartedly joked about the Memphis concert in an earlier press conference, and when we got there everything seemed to be controlled and calm, but underneath somehow, there was this nasty atmosphere. It was a very tense and pressured kind of day."

In the photo, the audience looks a little pressured itself. They don't look much like they're having fun...

All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth...
