Beatles Sell Out the Amphitheater in Colorado

I visited the museum (again) at Red Rocks Amphitheater yesterday – I always have to stop by the 1964 Beatle exhibit as it changes over time with new display material.  There are some nice photos in the current display – I particularly like this first one which dispels the talk about Red Rocks “not being sold out”.  That was just bull.  That story was based on tickets taken at the entry gates – Truth is the gates were rushed and 100’s of young fans stormed the open seating without having their ticket taken and thus many (my wife included) still have their ticket intact to this day!

I like the second photo showing what must have been a father who must have accompanied his young daughter to the concert – a true camper!  And the first Invaders at Red Rocks?  Peter and Gordon a few weeks ahead of the Fab Four.
