The Beatles in concert in the evening of July 2nd











From what I can tell (and I know you all will correct me if I am wrong), the evening concert in Tokyo was the first time John Lennon wore glasses on stage during a concert.    I have seen him in glasses during rehearsals for TV shows and he wore glasses during the NME awards in May of 1966, but that wasn't a full concert.   It is easy to date these photos  because you just have to look for the ones with John in the glasses.

  1. I saw them 7 weeks later in Seattle, just before the swan song Candlestick Park concert. Love, love, love your pictures. Thanks.
