On this date in 1966 the Beatles performed their final full concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. Beatlemania swept the world in the 1960s, and it still continues to this day. If you’re a Beatles fan, you’d expect to see the band in bronze form in their hometown of Liverpool, England…but not in a place like Almaty, Kazakhstan. Yep, that’s right. John, Paul, George and Ringo will eternally hang out on a bench near the Kok Tobe mountains greeting tourists and hikers alike. The bronze statues were created in 2007 by artist Eduard Kazaryan to pay respect to the popularity and universal appeal of the group, especially in the former Soviet republics. It would be cool (or annoying) if the sound of the song “Back in the U.S.S.R.“ was coming out of the figures, or at least John’s shiny guitar.
