The Shea Stadium concert was one of the first times a rock concert took place in a stadium setting. More than 55,000 people attended the show, taking place a year and a half after the group made its first American television appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

The concert footage includes renditions of “A Hard Day’s Night,” “I’m Down,” “Everybody’s Trying to be my Baby” and “Dizzy Miss Lizzy.”

“The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” will make its US theatrical debut on September 16 through Abramorama before becoming available to stream for Hulu subscribers the following day.
