As a high-school student and aspiring photographer, Carlson apprenticed in the studio of renowned photographer Merle Morris in Minneapolis, MN. When the press passes for the Beatles' concert in Minneapolis came through, Carlson grabbed one, picked up his Hasselblad and Nikon cameras, and headed out to Metropolitan Stadium. He went not so much as a Beatles fan - though he came to love them later - but as photography-hungry youth determined to seize every opportunity to learn and perfect his art.
The Beatles! A One Night Stand in the Heartland brings together strands from several remarkable stories. First, there is the story of John, Paul, George, and Ringo themselves, who in 1965 were at the height of their popularity. Second, Carlson tells his own story of how he interacted with the Beatles that day. And third, Carlson's photos document the 25.000 or more screaming, shouting, cheering, swooning, clapping, crying, and singing Minnesotans who were transformed by what they experienced that day...even though most of them probably couldn't hear a single note.
