Ladies And Gentlemen... The Beatles!

August 20, 1965

Shows at 3 and 8.

Four men.

An estimated 52,000 of their close personal friends.

Surprisingly, no accurate set list has been found.

This is the best estimation.

* Twist And Shout
* She's A Woman
* I Feel Fine
* Dizzy Miss Lizzie
* Ticket To Ride
* Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby
* Can't Buy Me Love
* Baby's In Black
* Act Naturally**
* A Hard Day's Night
* Help!
* I'm Down

(**- NOTE: For some shows, the Beatles would drop Act Naturally, and play I Wanna Be Your Man instead)

Sure beats "Disco Demolition"!

Why did the tickets say "White Sox Park" instead of "Comiskey Park"?

Matt Runyon said...

$5.50 was probably considered to be expensive back then.

I'll take the Beatles over Steve Dahl any day!!

Comiskey was originally known as White Sox Park when it opened in 1910. Within three years, the name changed to Comiskey, when most Chicagoans started referring to the place as Comiskey's park. The "White Sox Park" name was restored in 1962 and lasted until 1976, when it reverted back to Comiskey.

$5.50 was the price of the most expensive seats for the concert. Yes, I imagine that was a lot back then.

It would have been cool to see them live, although I'm guessing the hysterical screaming drowned out any actual music at both these shows!
