I went to see Beatlemania 40 years ago on March 3rd, 1981. They had big search lights outside, making it feel like a real “event”. Adam Smasher was doing a TV spot for Channel 13 out front. The sound was not great for “opening night” but the lighting effects were good on songs like Strawberry Fields and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. I recall the guy playing George crouching in front of his amp to create feedback on Helter Skelter. The guy playing John got the most applause at the end, but then this wasn’t even 3 months after John’s assassination! – Roger Baker 6/17/2021
