The Beatles in Minnesota

Poster for Minneapolis event
Although The Beatles toured America three times between 1964 and 1966 they performed one time only in Minnesota, at the (Old) Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, right in the middle of their 1965 US tour and played to an estimated audience of 30,000 teen-age fans, on August 21, 1965. This is being celebrated July 24th with Bob Bonis' photos of the Beatles' performance on display and for sale at the Mall of America, which was built on the same site where the Metropolitan Stadium was back then.
The Grammy Museum is sponsoring the exhibition, titled “Ladies and Gentlemen… The Beatles!,”
