August 19, 1966. The Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee. The Beatles performed both matinee & evening concerts here and I was there for both shows. Bobby Hebb & The Cyrkle were the opening acts.

According to Mark Lewisohn's “The Beatles Live,” neither show was a sellout, with the early show only filling 10,000 of the 13,300 seats. (Attendance for the second show was 12,500.)
