The official Instagram account of the legendary late musician, John Lennon posted a really golden-worth photo of John and revealed a very little-known story of how Paul McCartney convinced John and other bandmates of not touring forever.

As you will read the story below, Paul McCartney called the band’s Cavern Club show ‘worse than those early days’ that the band played in front of only 23.000 fans.

Here is the story:

“RAIN, 1966⠀
Amidst hangers and locker cubbies, John Lennon lounges backstage before the Beatles’ show at Busch Memorial Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 21, 1966, photographed by Bob Bonis. These few moments of peace turned out to be fleeting, as once The Beatles took the stage, they were pummelled with a downpour. Though the venue had constructed a makeshift shelter out of slivers of corrugated iron, rain still dripped on the amps and created a downright soggy attitude in the band.

Paul McCartney called the show “worse than those early days” at the Cavern Club, one of the very reasons he finally agreed with the others to stop touring forever. So the 23,000 fans in attendance were amongst the last to see The Beatles on tour as they played only four more shows before retiring from touring and live performances, although London guests at January 30, 1969, rooftop show at Apple Records headquarters have the distinction of being the last to ever see the fab four perform live. ⠀

Setlist: ‘Rock and Roll Music’ (Chuck Berry cover). ‘She’s a Woman’, ‘If I Needed Someone’, ‘Day Tripper’, ‘Baby’s in Black’, ‘I Feel Fine’, ‘Yesterday’, ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’, ‘Nowhere Man’, ‘Paperback Writer’, ‘Long Tall Sally’ (Little Richard cover)”
