10,000 fans filled Wembley’s Empire Pool stadium in April for the 3 and a half hour show, what we called “the greatest pop show in the world.”

There were performances from The Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones, The Animals and The Beatles who made their first stage performance since January.

Of The Stones performance, we wrote: “Mick’s facial dramatics during ‘The Last Time’ are an education.” Whilst our NME man reported that during The Beatles performance, “the girl next to me fell on her knees weeping.”
