regarding their 66 tours Their last US show in San Francisco sold 25000 tickets though the stadium holds 42,500. Ticket sales in general had declined throughout the tour. Why fly all the way to Tokyo and the Philippines to do a couple of days worth of shows, it seems a bit out of the way, it wasn't like they were touring the whole of southeast Asia- these were the only shows they did. Was this Brian just pushing them to do it all without regard to how The Beatles felt, he wanting to conquer the world? Brian had 1966 mapped out for them including a movie to be made, the Beatles said no to the movie and ended up having 3 months off which they used to focus on recording Revolver, the extra time allowed them to experiment and learn to use the studio a bit more. We would not have Revolver as it is had Brian got his way. Paul was the last to accept they would not tour, the others made the decision without his agreement.
