Two shows with the Beatles. First out is the show from Shea Stadium in Atlanta on the 18th of August 1965. This was The Beatles only visit to Atlanta and it lasted around 10 hours, but was remarkable for one key reason: monitor speakers on the stage allowed them to hear themselves play – a rarity during the whirlwind of Beatlemania. 18 August was a hot day, and as there was no air conditioning in the stadium Paul McCartney requested a large fan for the backstage area, although it made little difference. Atlanta Stadium – later renamed the Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium – had only been recently opened. Tickets for the show had gone on sale two months earlier, with field level seats costing $5.50 and upper level ones $4.50. Fans had begun arriving at the stadium from 4.30am on the morning of the show. The second show is from the Empire Stadium in Vancouver on Saturday the 22nd of August 1964. This was Beatles first ever Canadian show and it took place in front of 20,261 fans at the Empire Stadium. The show began at 8.15 pm and The Beatles took to the stage at 9.25 pm. The support acts were, in order of appearance, The Bill Black Combo, the Exciters, The Righteous Brothers, and Jackie DeShannon. The Beatles performed an 11-song set, for some reason choosing not to play I Want To Hold Your Hand. The group’s performance was broadcast live by local radio station CKNW. After their performance they ran from the stage to their waiting limousine and were driven from the stadium, accompanied by motorcycle outriders, less than a minute after they stopped playing. The Beatles were taken straight to Vancouver International Airport, from where they flew straight to Los Angeles.
