THE BEATLES IN PORTLAND

On August 22, 1965, the Beatles came to Portland, Oregon with one of their charter plane’s four engines belching flames and black smoke as the plane descended into Portland (oil leaking onto a hot engine).

The Beatles played two performances at the Memorial Coliseum with its trademark glass shell to nearly 20,000 screaming fans.




Tickets for each of the shows were priced at $4, $5 and $6. There were also a number of pink tickets for the Coliseum's upper level which were free.The concerts took place at 3.30pm and 8pm. Among The Beatles' guests backstage were Carl Wilson and Mike Love of The Beach Boys.
