Fifty years ago today the Beatles played at the then-new Busch Stadium II (1966-2006):

The Beatles made their only appearance in St. Louis on Aug. 21, 1966. They performed 11 songs, including some of their biggest hits: “Yesterday,” “I Feel Fine” and “She’s a Woman.”

One song they didn’t play was “Rain.” Nature took care of that. A substantial thunderstorm competed at times with the sounds being piped from 200 speakers at Busch, which was only a few months old. (Post-Dispatch)

I wasn’t there — I was still in my mom’s womb in Oklahoma. I also wasn’t at the Paul McCartney concert on the 13th at the decade-old Busch Stadium III.

Thinking about these two concerts got me wondering about venues, which is the subject of today’s non-scientific poll:

The answers above are shown in random order, the poll closes at 8pm.

    One of the best shows ever was pearl jam at the fox back in 04.

    My preference is a smaller, dedicated music venue (like the Pageant, the Rock House or the Sheldon), not a multi-purpose theater (like the Fox), a shed (like Riverport / Verizon / Hollywood), an arena (like Scottrade) or a stadium (like Busch). That said, my favorite venue (still operating) remains Red Rocks, outside of Denver: http://redrocksonline.com/
