    That’s a great photo! Lots of activity going on. Ringo appears to be playing, John has is hands up in the air, and the guy on his side on the stage looks as though he is about to get clobbered. Is that Mal in the white shirt?

    Isn’t this the Cow Palace in San Fran in 1965?…I remember reading about a male fan jumping on stage and stealing Lennon’s hat…

    I believe that’s San Francisco. I remember this happening!

    That explains the object in dude’s right hand and why John’s hair looks tossed like a salad! Awesome info…mystery solved. Thanks BeatleJim and Alpha Bitch.

    Cow Palace in 1965 as well.. Doesn’t necessarily seem as the same kid though. Security must not have been prepared!

    I think john’s hat was taken by the fan during the afternoon show. The guys were wearing their “shea stadium” jackets in the evening show and John’s hat was gone. But I have seen a LOT of photos of girls on the stage from the evening performance as well. You would have thought after John’s hat gets stolen off his head during the afternoon show, security would have been more on guard, but it seem like Mal and Alf were the only security there!

    The only time they had any real security were the times they played in NY. They came so close to getting killed so many times. It’s a miracle nothing truly bad, at least on the physical side, ever really happened to them. I always thought that there was some sort of force guiding the Beatles through out that incredible time. God bless them man. As a guitarist myself, I owe them everthing! Those early yrs of learning to play, my fingers bloody, it was their influence, the songs, something magical about them that kept me playing and wanting to get better.
