Vintage Beatles news clipping: Shea '67

The third time wasn't a charm when it came to the Beatles playing in New York's Shea Stadium. 

After playing shows there in 1965 and 1966, the group rejected a $1 million offer from promoter Sid Bernstein to perform at Shea in the summer of 1967. By that time, the group had permanently sworn off touring, preferring to focus on studio work instead. 

Bernstein would go on to pester the group for decades with big money offers to reunite and perform live again. As we all know, they never did.
