Fifty years ago this week, The Beatles landed on Australian soil -
and changed our lives forever..
The nation fell in love with The Beatles, their cute mop-tops and Liverpudlian accents, cheeky repartee, and, of course,
Do you want to know a secret?
When they came to Brisbane, I was in the audience!
I was very young, it was my first stadium concert, at Brisbane's Festival Hall,
my natural inclinations were towards classical music -
I loved it!!!
At first I was bemused by all the screaming girls around me and my friends;
I thought it disrespectful not to listen nicely to the music;
then finally I joined in, and yelled out 'Paul' with the best of them.
Sore throat next day.
Here they are, in Brisbane, at the old Lennon's Hotel, meeting some bewildered Australian fauna brought in to be shown off.
That poor wallaby on the left. Oh Dear.
and I still have my programme...
We loved them, Yeah, yeah, yeah,
What are your memories of The Beatles?
Have a happy week
