The Beatles play 12 songs, including their latest hit, "Help!" performing for about 30 minutes. The Shea sound system can't compete with the crowd, which the New York Daily News estimates is 75% teenage girls, all screaming like crazy. The crowd can barely hear The Beatles, and The Beatles can't hear themselves, but this is much more about spectacle than sound quality.

So how does the first rock show in a stadium pan out? Acoustically, it's a disaster, but logistically it goes quite well, with no major incidents. It's also a financial winner, taking in $304,000, about $160,000 of which goes to The Beatles. The verdict: stadium rock is a winner.

The cost of a ticket was $5.65.
