  • 1973:Queen kicks off their first tour as an opening act for Mott the Hoople in West Yorkshire, England, less than a year before making their U.S. debut.

  • 2005:Paul McCartney’s performance of “Good Day Sunshine” and “English Tea” in Anaheim is broadcast live as a wake-up call for astronatuts on the International Space Station, making it the first live concert broadcast beamed to outer space.
