Special events will also include setting the August 26 version of Friday Night Fireworks to Beatles music and having Bob Eubanks (host of The Newlywed Game and promoter of the band’s 1966 Hollywood Bowl concert) throw the first pitch, and an August 30 version of the Beatles hit “Drive My Car” at 7 p.m. by the Beatles LOVE by Cirque Du Soleil Las Vegas cast, who will also throw the first pitch that evening.

I wish they would have done something like this for the Beatles Shea Stadium concerts!
