Description: The Shea Stadium concert on August 15 was record breaking and one of the most famous concert events of its era. It was the first concert to be held at a major outdoor stadium and set records for attendance and revenue generation — promotor Sid Bernstein said "Over 55,000 people saw the Beatles at Shea Stadium. We took $304,000, the greatest gross ever in the history of show business" — demonstrating that outdoor concerts on a large scale could be successful and profitable.
The Beatles were transported to the roof of the World's Fair by a New York Airways Boeing Vertol 107-II helicopter, then taking a Wells Fargo armoured truck to the stadium. At the stadium itself were 2,000 security personnel to handle crowd control.
Beatlemania was at one of its highest marks at the Shea Concert. Many teenagers and women were seen crying, screaming, and even fainting. The sound was so deafening that none of The Beatles (or anyone else) could hear anything. Vox had specially designed 100-watt amplifiers for this tour and it was still not anywhere near loud enough, and so the Beatles used the house amplification system. John Lennon described the noise as "wild" and also twice as deafening when the Beatles performed. The Beatles were overwhelmed by the experience. Not being able to hear each other or even themselves, they just played through a list of songs nervously, not knowing what kind of sound was being produced. At one point, John Lennon saw the whole show as being so ridiculous that he just began playing the keyboard with his elbows while the whole group laughed hysterically. The show itself was extremely short. The crowd's behavior would scare The Beatles later on in other concerts, because the people were unpredictable.
This is one of the Darthelves’ greatest exploits: getting into the ABC TV vault, finding the 35mm film broadcast master – complete with space for commercial breaks and – not seen since the original broadcast – Boston Pops conductor Arthur Fiedler’s introduction. Here it is, in far better quality than is typically seen. Naturally, the restored version, if Apple ever sees fit to release it, will probably blow this away. But it will also be a very different edit. Here it is, as ABC broadcast it on January 10, 1967 --- Neo, 2006
