Live: Atlantic City, New Jersey

On August 30th 1964, The Beatles played to 18,000 screaming fans at the Convention Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. After the 30 minute performance they were forced to leave in a laundry truck to avoid being seen by the frenzy outside. 

During their stay in Atlantic City, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote Every Little Thing, which would later appear on Beatles for Sale, on December 4th, 1964. 


"John and I got this one written in Atlantic City during our last tour of the States. John does the guitar riff for this one, and George is on acoustic. Ringo bashes some timpani drums for the big noises you hear."
- Paul McCartney
