50 years ago The Beatles invade Canada

So 50 years ago yesterday, The Fab Four played two 22 minute shows at the Montreal Forum. Tickets were, in my opinion, a bargain. :lol:

Alas I was not there!

The 50th anniversary of the Toronto show at Maple Leaf Gardens was yesterday. There was a cool feature on the local news showing footage including an interview I had never seen before.

I have a book about the Beatles in Canada called "Our Hearts Went Boom". http://www.quillandquire.com/review/our ... of-canada/

My friend Bill Dillon was at the 64 and 65 shows and hung out with all the girls in front of the King Edward Hotel.
