The Ringo Kid

The final new city on The Beatles' exhausting summer 1964 tour was Dallas, Texas. Local radio station KLIF-AM built up anticipation in the preceding weeks with special promotions and jingles.

They arrived at Love Field just after midnight on September 18th and drove to the CabaƱa Motor Hotel. That evening, they gathered backstage at the venue, Dallas's Memorial Auditorium, where WFAA-TV reporter Bert Shipp interviewed the cowboy-hat-sporting musicians.

Another press conference followed, leading up to the concert, the last regular performance on the tour. Note that this press conference recording contains an extra 3 minutes of material compared to its earlier posting on this blog.
