One guy described the gig in Boston: “The atmosphere was electrifying. We took our seats on the side, about center ice. When they bounded on stage, the place went mad. Hearing the screaming on video does not come near the feeling of being in the middle of it, enveloped in it. The sound was deafening. There was a flashbulb going off every millisecond; the sight of hundreds of flashbulbs going off constantly was the single most amazing laser experience I’ve ever seen.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
