There’s not a lot of Beatles news to report during this period, though that doesn’t necessarily mean they weren’t doing anything. John, for instance, was

…collaborating on a short play based on material from his two books, In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works, that no less an august temple than Britain’s National Theatre planned to stage in June. (Bob Spitz, The Beatles)

But this is not the type of thing you can attach to a specific date.

I’d be willing to bet that The Beatles took note of the fact that Bob Dylan played live for the first time in 18 months today, at the Woody Guthrie Memorial Concert at Carnegie Hall. You can read Rolling Stone’s original coverage here. Although he had already been working with the members of The Band for a long time, this was the first performance where they were billed as such. (RS feels the need to put “The Band” in quotes.) No video seems to exist, but we do have audio; enjoy.
