George Harrison and John Lennon harmonize at John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, PA, August 10, 1966, in this charming photograph taken by The Beatles’ US tour manager, Bob Bonis.
The Beatles concert was the first concert ever at the recently renamed JFK Stadium (formerly Philadelphia Municipal Stadium). The show was sponsored by George A. Hamid, the owner and promoter of the world famous Steel Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Storms threatened throughout the night but held off until ten minutes after the Beatles left the stage.
The set list was: “Rock and Roll Music,” “She’s A Woman,” “If I Needed Someone,” “Baby’s In Black,” “Day Tripper,” “I Feel Fine,” “Yesterday,” “I Wanna Be Your Man,” “Nowhere Man,” “Paperback Writer,” and “I’m Down.”
