Syrin’s Summer Playlist- The Beatles

Never intended by its architects as a concert venue. However, more Beatle fans saw the Fab Four perform at Shea Stadium.

The first "Shower of Stars" show was June 14, 1963. It starred Dion, The Chiffons, The Shirelles, and Freddy Cannon. The show did extremely well, but there would not be another rock concert at the stadium until the Beatles were  promoted.. The Beatles show easily sold out to more than 12,000 for a gross sale of about $75,000

In September 1965, the Beatles played a massive concert at New York's Shea Stadium that marked one of the defining moments of their career and created a new industry (mega stadium concerts). Well, Shea Stadium doesn't exist anymore.
