1964: The Beatles made their American live debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” performing a five-song set, including the No. 1 single that week, “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” The show received more than 50,000 applications for the 728 seats in the studio.
1972: Beginning a covert university tour where Paul McCartney could play to small audiences, Wings played their first show – an unannounced concert at Nottingham University in England.
1974: The Stooges played their final concert, with an imploding Iggy Pop taunting the crowd, which responds with a variety of projectiles. The opening act was a young band called Aerosmith.

    I remember The Beatles performance – it was my 19th birthday and I watched in a dormitory lounge at SUNY New Paltz.

  2. Greg says:

    Well, in that case – Happy birthday, Richard!

    Hope that Joe Ely plays the Hangar this year, he’s truly one of the best!
