If you recall, the day before the concert in Milwaukee, during the press conference in Indianapolis, George was asked if the Beatles ever get sore throats when touring. George says something about how he had a sore throat and so did John. John's throat problems must have gotten worse overnight because it was so bad that he did not attend the press conference in Milwaukee. For the only time in Beatles American press conference history, only three Beatles were present. And the one Beatle who was resting in the hotel suite was the one Beatle that usually did all of the talking during the press conference. Paul, George and Ringo were left to fend for themselves and answer questions about why they did not wave to fans at the airport.
