By the middle of August 1964, The Beatles had several # 1 songs, LPs and now a movie.  They were the hottest act in music and Beatlemania consumed the country, specially young women.    

On this day in 1964, The Beatles had their US concert at The Cow Palace in San Francisco.   They sang the following songs:    

”Twist and Shout”

“You Can’t Do That”

“All My Loving”

”She Loves You”

“Things We Said Today”

“Roll Over Beethoven”

“Can’t Buy Me Love”

“If I Fell”

“I Want to Hold Your Hand”

“Boys”

“A Hard Day’s Night”, and, 

“Long Tall Sally”.    

The show lasted about 30 minutes and all of the 16,000 fans went home very happy.
