Beatles zap fans, $1,000 grand

LONDON (f' - To o many
people want to hold their hand.
And so, drummer Ringo Starr
announced yesterday, there will
be no more of the live Beatle
performances that wrought hys-
teria in teen-agers and ulcers
in policemen around the world.
"It's awful news but we knew
it was coning," mourned Beatle
addict Florence Telders, a min-
iskirted young mother w h o
plays pop records to her child-
ren. "Nobody has seen them for
years. But as long as they keep
making records and films it will
be all right."
They plan to do just that.,
John Lennon, Paul McCart-
ney, George Harrison and Ringo
last performed in public Aug.
29, 1966, in San Francisco. Pro-
rnoters have offered t h e m $1
million a night or more to go1
back on stage, but the Beatles,
not hurting for money, have re-
fused:
The size and the clothes-tear-
ing mood of ecstatic Beatles au-
diences, plus increasing com-
plexity of the pop group's elec-
tronic musical paraphernalia
has made logistics for live per-
formances comparable to plan-
ning a small-scale war.
Apple; t h e Beatles' business
organization, said staging such
performances is no longer feasi-
ble.
"No more public shows-nev-
er," said Ringo, who nine years
ago w a s a factory apprentice
making $14.40 a week. "I sup-
pose it's a bit n a s t y on the
fans.". '
Fans who heard about their
decision from newsmen had
varying reactions.
"Ow, this is terrible. I kept
hoping they'd come back," said
Victoria Adrian, a petite 15-
year-old brunette.
"First Paul gets married and
now we're, never going to "see
themi any more - I don't know
which is worse," said teen-ager
Sally Webster. McCartney mar-
ried New York divorcee Linda
Eastman this month to the
howling protest of worshipers
outside his house.
"It's just as well they're not

coming back," said another fan.
"I still like their music but the
way they've been carrying on
lately has put me off. John Len-
non over there in Holland in bed
with his wife, for instance."
Another newlywed, Lennon
and his b r i d e Yoko Ono are
staging a honeymoon lie-in for
peace and love in an Amster-
dam hotel room.
"I used to like them. But we

never got to see them, so what
difference does it make if they
don't come back?" said another
record buyer.
Reaction to Beatles' concerts
in Britain, the United States,
Japan and Italy gave the lan-
guage a new word - Beatle-
mania.
They were to have given their
first concert in two years in
January. There had been many

delays before that date was set.
Then it was postponed again
indefinitely.
Peter Brown, an executive of
Apple, said: "We tried to ar-
range one last concert but it
just was not practicable." He
said giant outdoor stadiums
don't yield the right kind of
sound and there is no hall bii
enough to hold the hordes who
would want to attend.
