Default The Beatles At Shea Stadium 1965

The Beatles At Shea Stadium

August 15th, 1965, The Beatles played their legendary concert at Shea Stadium in New York City. The show was the first on their 1965 US summer tour, and it was also the first-ever stadium rock concertShea, in front of a sell-out crowd of 55,600 fans.

I Feel Fine

Better sound from the performance, probably through the soundboard. Girls' screaming is drastically drowned out.

Ticket To Ride
This is taken from something on VH-1. Aside from the littles bits of Garth Brooks, and voice overs from the lady presenter and Ringo, you get to see and hear most of this performance.

I have this on a bootleg dvd. What's missing on the 10 minute version from above is Ringo performing "Act Naturally" live. You can just barely hear him sing since the roaring screams of the
50,000 + girls drowning out his performance.
There is also a few minutes of where they perform " A Hard Day's Night" but is voice overed with sound bites from interviews done with the lads by Larry Kane.

Together with the helicopter ride and backstage sequences, the show was filmed by Sullivan Productions (Ed Sullivan's company) in association with NEMS Entreprises (Brian Epstein's), and released as a documentary film called The Beatles At Shea Stadium.

Not all of the Beatles' Shea set is in the film - She's A Woman and Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby are both omitted - and what is included was subjected to audio sweetening back in London. Additionaly, throughout the film, the Beatles are heard via voice-overs, recorded by the US broadcaster Larry Kane.

To fix Act Naturally the Beatles did nothing: the film's post-production team merely replaced the Shea recording with the Beatles' disc version (recorded 17 June 1965), sync-ing it to the picture by means of audience cutaways and even, in places, cuts in the music. (Intentionally or otherwise, one moment - where Ringo's vocal is evident but his mouth is closed - was left in the film uncorrected.)
"Excuse me, do you mind not farting while I'm saving the world?" -The 9th Doctor, DOCTOR WHO episode "World War Three"

What a treat! I have the August 15, 1965 concert on dvd. My favorite part is "I Feel Fine" and the close ups of George. And who could forget George in that brown para-military jacket, his thick wavy hair blowing in his face? And George, intensely playing the intricate parts to "I Feel Fine?" Oh, you mean George wasn't the only Beatle at Shea?
With a love like that, you know you should be glad, yeah, yeah, yeah!-- Beatles, 1963

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind. -- George Harrison, 1966
