Memories from the fans in the stands

I was at the 3 o’clock show. Couldn’t hear a thing. Kept looking at the girls wondering why they came –all they did was drown out the music and scream. I heard them sing “Help!” …And I don’t mean the song, just the first word. Oh well, only cost 3 or 4 bucks. – Steve

I was there, too, and it occurs to me that those of us who can say we were there are now all senior citizens! The build-up was agonizing, and there was utter pandemonium when the Beatles' equipment was finally set up and they appeared out of the dugout near third base and walked onto the field. If you were in the stands that evening you could only occasionally hear a few notes of the music when the screaming subsided. I was 14, and it was my first "rock concert." An unforgettable experience. –Stephen

My dad took my sister, my brother and myself there when we were kids. My Dad stayed outside the stadium and said he heard the music fine but it was so noisy we didn't hear much –anonymous

I was there too with my ex.  All I remember was that the Beatles looked really small next to their stage and their HUGE speakers.  We were in the nose bleed seats of course.  The sound was OK but screaming so loud hard to hear. – Julie

I got these tickets at Comisky  for my 16th birthday!! What a shock to see that my Dad only paid $2.50-$3.50 for them! I sat, no, stood screaming, right next to a huge pole with a huge speaker on it....didn't hear much cuz of the screaming but it was Awesome!! One of the best gifts EVER!!! –anonymous
