The Beatles were tired; they were at the end of their touring career. That is, two days before their last concert to a paying audience in Candlestick Park, San Francisco.

This year was the year of the fiasco in Manila and ripples of hate John may have created with his remark about Jesus and The Beatles in the more conservative sections of the US.
