You could go back in time to see one Beatles' concert. Which of these would it be?

    Roof Top. At that point, absolute pros, with a big catalog, that had potentially so much more to offer live, and that offering would have been killer. Those four touring with modern equipment and PA systems (or even house PAs built to accommodate music in larger venues) would have been mind altering.

    Rooftop for sure due to the lack of hysterical, screaming teenage girls.

    Roof Top.
    Very intimate and exclusive.

    A great encapsulation and career denouement to witness.

    There aren’t any screaming crying pleading teens over-shouting above the music, nor fainting all around you.

    Cavern. To be able to see the raw talent.
    Better yet to see them in Hamburg Germany playing the Star Club.

    Probably Shea just for the spectacle of it all, but any of those would be A-OK with me. Perhaps the Ed Sullivan show would be my last choice only because I think the experience of watching it on TV instead of in person would be best.

    The Cavern. Ok - the place stank, but to see them up close, bantering with the audience, playing music they loved...

    But you have to sit next to Yoko and share your digestive biscuits with her. So do you wish to change your vote?

    Cavern or Star Club for sure. Washington is far behind.


    The tour with Orbison comes to mind too. Anyway, the early Beatles with Ringo pn board, preferably 1963 or 1964.

    No - but you could smuggle booze in.

    action pact ^^ Sandy Warner, "The Exotica Girl"

    Perhaps @royzak2000 can confirm, since he was there?

    It appears that they were not licensed for alcohol, which makes sense considering it was mainly a teen club:

    Is that a bottle of beer on the far left?

    BTW, that's Cilla Black when she was still known as Cilla White and worked at the Cavern.

    I change my vote. Did not know you could buy hot nuts at the Cavern.

    I know it was a historic moment but I thought the sound on the Sullivan show was awful. Their amps - if they were going through guitar amps - weren't even onstage.

    Which incidentally was August 3, 1963, a few weeks before "She Loves You" was released in the UK:

    Cavern Club would be my choice but it would be hard to resist a chance to be on that rooftop.

    Cilla's not getting anywhere near my hot nuts.

    Your late dog's name sounds like something you'd buy to clean the bathroom!
