First full U.S. concert

52 years ago the Beatles rocked Washington D.C. and boy did they rock!     That concert is amazing---every time I watch it I get goose bumps.   Ringo was banging on those drums and the boys were giving the performance of their lives.    I am SO thankful that the video of this concert exists.

    1. To see those color photos is a bit surreal. Having seen photos and video/film of that concert in black and white all my life, I sometimes have to remind myself that the audience there wasn't seeing it that way too.

  2. Goosebumps every time I see it.

    Favorite moments:

    1.) Ringo sticking a straight microphone BETWEEN his legs and belting out "I Wanna Be Your Man" while bashing the hell out of his drums.....if that ain't the most rock and roll thing ever, I don't know what is!

    2.) So many flashbulbs going off during "This Boy" when they all share the microhpone...their faces look ghostly and eerie.

    3.) "I Saw Her Standing There"

    4.) The audience, holy moly.

    What a show!!!!
