On Sept. 12, 1964, the highly anticipated Beatles played the Boston Garden for the first and
only time. In this photo from that concert, John Lennon sang to the sold-out crowd.
The Beatles returned to Boston on just one other occasion, playing at Suffolk Downs racetrack
on Aug. 18, 1966, during their final US tour.
