On Sept. 12, 1964, the highly anticipated Beatles played the Boston Garden for the first and only time. This week we take a look back at concerts in Boston. This is an arbitrary group of artists chosen to hopefully interest different music lovers. It would be great to hear from people that attended the shows in the comments field. (More concerts will show up in the future.) — Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
