A drum kit featuring various drums that Ringo Starr used when The Beatles played their historic Shea Stadium concerts in 1965 and 1966 currently is on display for a limited time at the Bloomingdale’s flagship store on 59th St. in New York City. The kit includes the bass drum Starr played at his old band’s August 15, 1965, show at the now-demolished ballpark, as well as the floor and rack toms he used at the August 23, 1966, concert at the stadium.
The drums are being displayed in conjunction with the new line of Beatles-themed clothing and accessories Bloomingdale’s is selling that were created as part of a new campaign celebrating the band’s 50th anniversary and British culture in general. The kit can be viewed on the store’s Men’s Department, located on the main floor at the Third Avenue entrance. In early 2014, the “Shea Stadium Kit” — as the drum kit is known — will be exhibited at Bloomingdale’s Century City location in Los Angeles.
