On August 22, 1964, the Beatles did give their first Canadian concert. They appeared at the Empire Stadium in Vancouver, British Columbia, and 20,000 fans were there to enjoy the event.
How much did it cost for the great event? Are you ready? $5.25!
Unfortunately, the concert was cut short after only 27 minutes – because someone was afraid of a riot!
But, fortunately, there were bootlegged tapes of the show that was widely distributed!
