The first of 25 dates in the "The Beatle's First American Tour". It actually was their 2nd visit, but certainly the group's first major tour around the continent and even venturing into Canada for three concerts.

The Beatles performed just 12 songs and the tour's support acts were in order of appearance, the Bill Black Combo, the Exciters, the Righteous Brothers and Jackie DeShannon.

All 17,130 seats for this concert were SOLD, gate receipts totalling $91,670. The Beatles gross share of this was $47,600.
