How a summer night at Dodger Stadium turned 'nasty' for The Beatles and Bob Eubanks
Help! I need somebody! Help!"

If John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr weren't screaming those words aloud, they no doubt were thinking them as they sat trapped inside a Lincoln Continental that was smothered fender-to-fender by a frenzied blanket of screaming, crying, pawing, clawing fans who desperately wanted to touch their idols. It was Sunday night, Aug. 28, 1966, and The Beatles were trying to make a break for it after playing a 27-minute show for 45,000 people at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. It was the first concert booked at the 4-year-old ballpark and, though no one knew it at the time, the second-to-last show The Beatles would ever perform. After another stadium gig the following night at San Francisco's Candlestick Park, their concert career was over.

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
