This past Friday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated a milestone by commemorating the iconic stadium’s role in rock & roll history. The Beatles played their second to last public concert performance inside Dodger Stadium 50 years ago.
Back in 1966.The Beatles performed an 11 song set and barely escaped the venue through a series of snafus that nearly put John, Paul, George and Ringo in danger of being rushed upon by a screaming mob of fans before being transferred to another vehicle and carried off to safety.
The Fab Four Beatles Tribute Band took the field prior to the Dodgers game against the Chicago Cubs to perform a recreation of the same set list performed 50 years ago.
Rusty Anderson of Paul McCartney‘s band performed the Star Spangled Banner.
Immediately following the game, a special fireworks show with programmed music by Breakfast With The Beatles Radio Host Chris Carter filled the night sky above Chavez Ravine to close out the day to remember when four young men from Liverpool England took the world by storm making one second to last stop in Los Angeles…and changed music forever.
Awesome! Wished I had known I would have gone.
