Loge13 has covered all the rock & roll history of Shea Stadium...or at least we thought we had.

Until today.

Because according to the 1966 Batman Message Board, The Caped Crusader himself, along with The Riddler also played a gig at Shea Stadium on June 25, 1966.

Besides Adam West and Frank Gorshin, the show was supposed to feature eight other acts:

The Young  Rascals.
The Detroit Sound.
The Batusi Girls
Jr. Walker and The All-Stars.
The Temptations
The Chiffons
Shades of Blue.
Skitch Henderson and his orchestra.

Then Batman himself would ride out of the bullpen to greet the crowd and battle the Riddler, before both villain and hero sang a few numbers. But according to the NY Times coverage of the day, the concert was less than successful, forever relegated to the deepest recesses of Shea's finer musical moments.


If you were there, please let us know some more details!
