The Beatles give birth to stadium rock on this episode of This Day In History.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand recall The Beatles landmark concert at Shea Stadium in New York.
In 1965, The Beatles kick off their tour of the United States with a gig at New York City's Shea Stadium, a performance which many have called the birth of stadium rock. An audience of 55,600 ‘Beatlemaniacs' watched the band belt out 12 songs in about 30 minutes, and the concert was captured on film to be shown in movie theaters across America.
Plus, The Wizard of Oz debuts on the silver screen at Grauman's Chinese Theater in 1939, President Richard Nixon ends the convertibility of the U.S. dollar into gold by foreign investors in 1971, and Ben Affleck is born on this day in 1972.
