This was their first live performance since the band swore off touring a few years before. The ear-splitting shrieking of their teenaged fans made it impossible to hear the music.
One of the things I like best about this clip is watching the reaction of ordinary people going about their day, stopping in the streets and climbing out onto rooftops. Even some older Brits, who derided Rick and Roll just a few years before, couldn't help but be caught up in the magic of the moment.
The other thing I love about this song is how John Lennon flubs the lyrics, but keeps on going. Enjoy.
