Beatlemania Again Rocks Jefferson (90+ Photos!)

The national touring production opens the fifth season of the Jefferson Highlights Summer Concert Series.

On a warm, starlit night, a crowd of close to 1,000 came to Camp Jefferson to take a walk down Memory Lane.

Beatlemania Again opened the fifth season of the Jefferson Highlights Summer Concert Series with a chronological cache of Beatles hits, from early pop to later psychedelic selections. The show featured three costume changes.

Prior to the band taking the stage, Jefferson Highlights head Art Bonito welcomed the crowd to the amphitheater that bears his name, and Jefferson resident Haley James sang "(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman" for the crowd.

After the show ended, the performers were on hand to greet the crowd.

"There is nothing like good music and the Art Bonito Amphitheater to bring generations of people together," said Jefferson resident Jason Nicholas, who attended the show with his wife and five-year-old son.

I'm not sure how you were counting but I don't think there was anywhere near 1000 people. In fact, I'm not even sure 1000 can fit in that amphitheater. It was probably more like 300-400 max.

Indeed, more overfinflated numbers for a Jefferson Township event. I agree with you Beachbum on the 300-400 number.
