When did Beatlemania end?
« on: December 14, 2016, 04:46:06 PM »

I think Beatlemania only lasted for about a year or two when they first became popular.  After that, it seemed like the girls were screaming at all bands' concerts, not just the Beatles.  You really only see Beatlemania around A Hard Day's Night and after that I think it pretty much died down.  Also, I think a lot of the screamers were just copying each other in order to be one of the crowd.  If the other girls hadn't been screaming, I don't they'd have done it either.  So maybe a lot of that screaming was fake because it was nothing but a bunch of copycat screamers.

Also, the Beatles always complained about how they couldn't hear themselves.  Why didn't they just ask the girls to stop screaming?  I'm sure the girls liked them enough to respect their wishes.

Beatlemania started in the UK in 1963 and went on until 1966. Watch the movie Eight Days A Week.

Ask the girls to stop screaming? I don't believe it would make much sense. They would scream anyway.

By 1967, John and Paul were stamping their feet...

If you look at these images from 1968 you can still see girls screaming and fainting and this was just for a film premiere!

Myself I think Beatlemania only really stopped when the Beatles broke up.

Well, I guess I was wrong but I'm still not sure about it.  Wasn't Beatlemania defined as such when they first became popular?  Were media types still using that term in 1968?

By 1968 it was taken for granted. If the Beatles showed up anywhere there would be mayhem.

Maybe the press used the term 'Beatlemania' less but that doesn't mean it didn't exist.



When Paul married Linda in 1969 the police had to control the crowds of sobbing girls.

Thanks, zipp!  All you need to see is the faces of those crying girls (just two of them) and you know instantly that it's BEATLEMANIA!!
