Beatles ‘Germ Bomb’ Death Threat

Ironic that after hearing about Paul McCartney dealing with a bad virus, we hear from Ultimate Classic Rock that almost 50 years ago the Beatles received a threat that a germ bomb had been placed on their plane.

The tour was in New Zealand at the time and they were set to go to Australia. After a through search by authorities, it was determined to be a hoax. So the only fans that suffered was 2,000 of them waiting at the airport on a tarmac after a delay.

McCartney’s reaction at that time, “I don’t take much notice of them. On one tour in England we had a bomb hoax every single night. The trouble is going to come one day when someone really does plant a bomb.” The biggest concern on the tour was egg throwing as Ringo explained, “We certainly hope they get rid of egg-throwing if we do come back. I think that was a disgusting display of bad manners.”
