Australian fans recall seeing the Beatles 50 years ago

From the Sydney Morning Herald:
On the Beatles' only tour of Australia 50 years ago, Paul McCartney begged hysterical Sydney fans to do one big favour: ''Don't throw those sweets because they get in our eyes."

Pauline Baylis wasn't a thrower, but after the concert at Sydney Stadium ended, the 13-year-old fan snuck onto the stage to grab a lolly.

''When the crowds had died down, we went down and picked up a jelly baby from the stage, thinking this is amazing, it might have hit one of the Beatles,'' Ms Baylis said.
