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!
