Live: Crosley Field, Cincinnati

The Beatles played Crosley Field, Cincinnati on August 21st 1966. The band were due to play the day before but heavy rain and the high chance of electrocution prevented the show from going ahead.

"We had to get up early and get on and play the concert at midday, then take all the gear apart and go to the airport, fly to St Louis, set up and play the gig originally planned for that day. In those days all we had were three amps, three guitars, and a set of drums. Imagine trying to do it now." - George Harrison

Photos were taken by The Beatles US tour manager Bob Bonis.
