The Beatles At Shea One More Time

The Beatles played Shea Stadium on August 15th 1965 in what was to be the first rock concert ever staged in a stadium in front of more than 55,000 people.  The event was filmed using fourteen 35mm cameras by Ed Sullivan Productions and Brian Epstein and for the very first time, the fully restored, remastered, 30-minute performance will be available to screen as part of the worldwide theatrical release of Academy Award®-winner Ron Howard’s authorized documentary feature film, The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years.

Part of the theatrical release package also includes an opportunity to use your original Beatles concert ticket stub from the 1960s for a chance to win a free ticket for the US theatrical release of the film. For more information, visit The film heads to theatres September 15th
