Fans remember the Beatles at Balboa

I was at Balboa stadium that night !!! $5.50 for a 5th row seat !!! My parents dropped me off, all alone.. Bell bottom pants , crop top and Beatle boots.. Wow, what a night to remember.. the beginning of the Beatles Revolution !!! –Suzanne

I was there with my older sister and family friends.  I was only 8 years old.  I remember being over a football field away and the screaming girls pulling up grass like it was walked on by the Fab Four.  I may have been the youngest fan there! Crazy!!  -- John

I was there! Won tickets on the radio and mom said no! You can't go! I snuck out and it was definately worth the 2 weeks restriction I got, ha ha!  -anonymous

I was there I was only 14 years old I do remember them I couldn't hear them sing because all the screaming and I remember the tickets were only $5 apiece – Ruben

I was 11 years old when I saw the concert. My father insured KGB radio, and the station manager gave him 1 comp. ticket. We drove down to Balboa Stadium, and my dad stayed in the car and read his newspaper while I went in by myself. I remember the crowd booing the deejay who introduced each act. Finally, the Beatles came out, and I had to stand the whole the time with my fingers in my ears, which helped filter out the screaming. It seemed like 10 minutes to me, and then they were gone from the stage. On my way back to the car, I saw my first "hippie" with long hair, who was being handcuffed by the police. It was quite a night. – Larry
