MinneCulture – One Night Only: The Beatles in Minnesota

MinneCulture – One Night Only: The Beatles in Minnesota

by Britt Aamodt

August 21, 1965, the Beatles invaded Metropolitan Stadium for their first ever Minnesota concert, bringing together a high school photographer with a press pass, a teen dressed to impress, a Catholic schoolgirl and a newspaper intern posing as a waitress for a day they’d never forget. Who knew then that it would be the Fabs only Minnesota concert? Britt Aamodt has the story.
