The conundrum of The Beatles’ Red Rocks show

by The 100 Companies

In 1964, The Beatles were selling out all the dates on their U.S. tour. But their Aug. 26 show at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre which would be the first rock n roll show ever at the iconic venue was a strange anomaly, with only 7,000 tickets being sold.

However, Beatlemania was clearly alive and well, as a 5,000-person crowd gathered at the hotel the band would be staying at, The Brown Palace, causing a massive traffic jam downtown.

Though the Red Rocks show might not have sold out, it did set a box office record for the open-air stadium.
