    Man, that’s pretty audacious for your third concert…
    (you know…no more revolving drum platform?)
    Did the promoter oversell this show?
    I bet Brian swung a deal with the top brass
    …it’s probably just friends and relatives.
    Strangely, the group already looks plastic…
    like Revell model kits.
    I wonder if they had to do the meet-and-greet for the ticket-holders lucky enough to sit in those crummy seats on stage. What does it matter? Everyone has been hypnotized since Sunday!

    So, how do you get to Carnegie Hall???
    (Lots of practice!!!)

    Crummy seats!?, I’d give my left proverbial to be sitting on the stage while the Fabs played, not as far to fling my panties :-)

    Jeezus H. Christ, this is the first time I’ve seen a shot from the Carnegie Hall shows in colour .It’s like the gatefold image of “Beatles For Sale brought to vivid life. Seats on the stage at Beatles shows were not unique to Carnegie. I can think of instances where the choir seats on and behind the stage were sold-such as Sheffield 2 Nov 1963 and New Zealand June ’64

    I thought this one would cause a nether stirring :-)

    Wow! Just… WOW!

    Color picture of Carnegie Hall concert in Feb. 1964. Very rare!

    I’m sure all the women behind Paul would agree – “It must have been the trousers”!

    Maybe they’re all certified Vox amp technicians?

    I wonder why so few pic were taken, Washington has about a million photos.

    i was never at a beatle concert, but sitting onstage would certainly have been my favorite spot. there’s a part of me that can never forgive them for not coming to brazil. they always had a huge following here and we were totally ignored. not one radio show, one interview, nothing. manila and not rio de janeiro? come on…

  12. Kwai Chang says:

    I seriously doubt that the group avoided Brazil as much as they avoided Latin America(in its entirety). I would bet that this had NOTHING to do with J,P,G&R…but, everything to do with Colonial mentality of the Brian. I’m sure the course was plotted by ‘per-capita wealth’. How often did they play Liverpool? Or, even less…The Cavern. Fame is only about Profit. Ask ANY manager!
    We should all be happy that you didn’t get trapped in England. You could’ve easily been The Brazilian Ambassador To England. You are definitely qualified. Hey, everybody…Lizzie is giving us ALL Diplomatic Immunity!

    Still Kwai, the Fabs went to Manilla, i’m not sure that place was swimming in cash at the time (not sure they left the Fabs with a cent, i know they fleeced Brian at the airport) and they played Spain, a dictatorship .. if you look at the footage the venue is only about 1/4 full.

  14. mcarp555 says:

    Spain may certainly have been due to Brian, and Manila probably added to make the trip to Tokyo more profitable (which didn’t pan out in the end). A lot of the touring dates may also have been due to EMI’s activities in various countries.

    Also, South America is a loo-ong haul with lots of logistics to consider. They probably would have gone, eventually, had they continued to tour. Each year seemed to include one long trek outside the usual UK/US circuit (Hong Kong, Oz, NZ in ’64, France, Italy, Spain in ’65, Tokyo, Manila in ’66). So perhaps Mexico City, Rio, etc. in ’67. But remember that Manila was only about eight weeks before Candlestick Park.
