Four-Letter Friday: Fun for FREE in Las Vegas-The Beatles

Fifty years ago the Beatles invaded America, showing up in Las Vegas on August 20, 1964.

Here’s my Beatles story.

My father was a corporate attorney in Chicago. A new client asked him to write a contract for a British group to perform at the International Amphitheater. His fee included two front-row tickets. So my sister and I saw the Beatles in the front row!

Here in Clark County, the Beatles played two concerts at an outdoor stage  before 16,816 screaming fans. That set the venue’s attendance record until 1990, when it was torn down to make way for progress, the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Here’s the Four-Letter (FREE) Friday part: The Las Vegas News Bureau photographed Beatlemania. The Las Vegas Convention Center is hosting a exhibition of these photos through October 27. And, you guessed it, it’s FREE!

Of course, parking is not free at the Las Vegas Convention Center and neither is a Las Vegas Monorail ticket, which drops you off at the front door. But you can park for free at the Westgate Las Vegas (nee the LVH and before that the Las Vegas Hilton) and hoof it!

Helping you live like a local.
