Fifty years ago today, the Beatles visited Minnesota for their one and only concert in the state.

The concert consisted of 11 songs, performed outdoors in front of 30,000 fans at the Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minn. (now the site of the Mall of America). Be sure to read Andrea Swensson's in-depth feature about that historic concert.
