What made the evening especially cool to me was not just the music, but the shared experience of it all. Everywhere you looked, folks in Beatles t-shirts were singing along, dancing, and being taken back to different times in their lives through the power of music. Incredible.

Ringo's funny banter between songs added a personal touch to the evening, making the audience feel as if they were in a more intimate setting, rather than a huge venue.
