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

    The Cavern where I could have seen them countless times and would have been able to see Pete Best performing and singing as well...

    Cavern, then rooftop. But I'd kill for a chance at a show in Hamburg!

    The last show with Pete Best and the first one with Ringo as the official Beatles drummer.

    I would have liked to see the reaction when Pete was canned and George got his black eye...LOL.

    Cavern Club; raw and free.

    I was at Candlestick.

    Don't forget watching Paul plays drums and George playing an upside-down Hofner bass. Clearly John was having none of that nonsense.

    Probably The Cavern because they were so tight back then as a live band but I'd change to Shea Stadium if I thought I could actually hear them play.

    Without a doubt....at The Cavern.

    My addendum: I’d like to see the Beatles at the Cavern or Hamburg before they met Brian Epstein.

    It would have to be Cavern or a Hamburg show; not only was the band at the top of their live game, you'd probably be able to pull a couple of birds after a few pints of beer.

    Yes, five shows over three days, June 30 (evening), July 1 (afternoon and evening), and July 2 (afternoon and evening). But only the first two shows were videotaped.

    Roof top. I’ve walked past that building and up that street so many thousands of times in all kinds of moods. And whatever that mood is, I always think of The Beatles up there, almost at the end of their astonishing time together. I would have to see that.

    Do you know if they ever performed She Loves You at the Cavern? That would have been extraordinary.

    The rooftop. I wasn't really impressed by what I heard form the recent Hollywood Bowl release, and I wouldn't want to strain my ears to hear over screaming fans. It would be cool to hear them in The Cavern as a raw rock and roll band, but the material, performances, and sound quality from the rooftop make it my first choice.
