Vor 50 Jahren die Beatles erobern Australien/Neuseeland vom 12 bis 30 Juni 1964 1964

When we arrived in Sydney it was pissing down with rain. We got off the plane and they put The Beatles on the back of a flat-back truck so the crowd could see them. They were carrying umbrellas and wearing the capes made in Hong Kong. The driver was doing one mile an hour, and John kept leaning over and saying, ‘Faster, faster!’ but he wouldn’t go any faster. I was saying, ‘Go faster – it’s pouring down,’ and he said, ‘These kids have been waiting here for twenty-four hours to see these guys.’
Nothing was going to make this big Australian trucker go any faster. By the time they got to the hotel everybody was blue because the dye in the capes had run and soaked right through; they all looked like old Celtic warriors covered in blue dye.

Ringo Starr verlässt das Krankenhaus am 11 Juni 1964, in dem er seit dem 3 Juni behandelt wurde wegen  akuter Mandelenzündung ,er fliegt alleine  nach Australien und stößt später dann zu seinen 3 Kollegen,am Schlagzeug für die Konzerte am 12 Juni in Adelaide spielte immer noch Jimmy Nichol.
