The Beatles, together and separately, in NJ (COMPLETE LIST OF SHOWS)

Beatles NJ concerts

A poster for The Beatles’ 1964 concert in Atlantic City.

With Ringo Starr having scheduled a June 14 concert at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, I’ve decided to put together a list of shows by the Beatles, separately and together, in New Jersey.

The Beatles only played in the state once, and John Lennon and George Harrison never did so on their own, so the list is dominated by Paul McCartney concerts (eight, from 1990 to 2017) and shows by Starr and his All Starr Band (nearly 40, starting in 1989 and going up to the one scheduled for 2020).

I’ve previously put together similar lists for Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead and The Rolling Stones.

My main sources are setlist.fm. and victorbaissait.fr/RingoStarrAndHisAllStarrBand. If you think I’m missing anything, please let me know in the Comments section below or by emailing me at njartsdaily@gmail.com.
