Saturday, August 28, 1965. The Beatles motor down to the now-demolished Balboa Stadium in San Diego from their rented digs in L.A. They conduct a brief press conference, surrender to a civic ceremony or two, and perform (by most accounts) a fairly unremarkable show.
Immediately afterward, they head up the road. The next day, they meet with their idol, Elvis Presley.
Thanks to all who kindly made this non-profit site possible: Eyewitness Susan Barron, who graciously (and patiently) provided all the color photos she had taken that day, along with her ticket stub and "Beatle Day" button; KGTV Chief Photographer Lee Louis, who smuggled his 16mm rig into the San Diego show and had no reason other than pure generosity to share the results; the San Diego Historical Society, the San Diego Union-Tribune, Jerry G. Bishop, and the Don DeWolf estate.
