WATCH: Whoopi Goldberg on The Beatles at Shea Stadium
The Beatles’ iconic Shea Stadium gig took place on this date (August 15) in 1965, and among the 56,000 people in attendance was a nine-year-old Whoopi Goldberg.
Goldberg recalled the way she found out she was going to the Shea Stadium show in the documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years.
Can you imagine being in Goldberg’s shoes on that subway platform? We had a moment when hearing her story ourselves!
If you haven’t seen Eight Days A Week yet, it is a must-watch for any music fan, period. If you subscribe to Hulu, you can stream the film for free. To get a feeling of the madness, check out the trailer below!
