The Cow Palace Performance

The Beatles performed their last concert of the North American Tour at the Cow Palace, San Francisco. The pandemonium generated by 56,000 screaming fans at their first performance (August 15, 1965) of The Beatles' Second concert tour of America at Shea Stadium, New York was repeated at the Cow Palace. The Beatles were seen by approximately 30,000 fans in two shows on August 31, 1965. Part way through their standard 12 song set, an unruly crowd managed to push forward and rush the stage causing the fainting of many fans while a fleeing Fab Four had to wait backstage until the frenzy diminished. The Beatles were visited backstage by Johnny Cash and Joan Baez. This was the Beatles second time at the Cow Palace. On August 19, 1964 the "Fab Four" began their one month tour of Canada and the United States at the Palace.
