Live: The Hollywood Bowl

The Beatles played two shows at the Hollywood Bowl on August 29th and 30th 1965. The band had performed there previously in August of 1964 to a sellout crowd. 

Before the show they held a press conference at the Capitol Tower at Hollywood and Vine. The President of Capitol Records, Alan Livingston presented The Beatles with gold discs for sales of Help!.

After the press conference they were driven by armoured truck to The Hollywood Bowl, where 18,000 screaming fans greeted them.

Tickets for the show were priced between $3 and $7, earning the boys $90,000 for that day's performance. They also played the following night to another sellout crowd.

Capitol Records recorded The Beatles' performance and three of the songs were later released on The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl in 1977. The source used for that release was always considered to be of poor quality. In august 2016 it was announced the album would be re-released using a superior source.
