MTBFR Update for August 2014
Well my summer is almost over and I thought this would be a good time to have an update. My play has finished and I had a wonderful time with some amazing actors. I even met some new friends in the cast who are Beatle fans!
Many of you are still looking forward to seeing Paul McCartney Out There in concert in the next few days. If you have anything exciting to share about the concert, please do so!
I will be at the Chicago Fest for Beatle Fans this weekend and I hope to see many of you at the Fest! I will be there Friday, Saturday and part of Sunday. I will be speaking on two panels at the Fest and I would it if you are there, if you would come and hear them.
Saturday at 4:15pm in the Paperback Writer room I will be taking part in the “She’s a Woman…..historian” panel with some other lovely ladies. We will be talking about the impact of the Beatles legacy past, present and future.
Sunday at 1:00 also in the Paperback Writer room I will be involved in a panel called “Across the Beatles-Cyber Universe” and we will be discussing the Beatle fandom online (which is a topic near and dear to me!).
I am very excited to be included in these discussions. If you are going to be at the Fest and don’t make it to a panel (which is totally cool—-there is so much going on and panel discussions are boring to some fans) please say hi to me.
Once I return from the Fest, I will be sharing photos and stories day by day of the Beatles 1964 North American Tour. (Much like I did for the World Tour earlier this year). I am pretty excited about this and I have been working on it for almost a year now. If you saw the Beatles during this tour 50 years ago it is not too late to email me your memories of the concert! Even if you just have a sentence or two to share, I would love to include it. Starshyne9@yahoo.com is my email.
While I am begging for information, I might as well as for something else. I am looking to talk to anyone who saw the following: the Beatles in St. Louis at Busch Stadium (August 21, 1966), George Harrison in St. Louis at the Arena (November 1974), Paul McCartney at Busch Stadium (April 1993) and Ringo Starr in St. Louis (1992, 1997 or 2001). Email me and I will fill you in on why I would like to talk to you and see if you would like to help me with something.
Peace and Love
