>technically speaking, especially in the latter part of their touring 
they weren't able to recreate the sound they were getting in the studio onto
the live stage. they were moving into "unchartered territory" in the studio. 
remember paul especially saying it was very difficult singing the harmony
parts on "nowhere man" live and "paperback writer" being difficult to 
perform in
those days. and this was before they came out with those speakers that lets 
band onstage hear themselves as well as the audience so even if they messed
up, they probably didn't hear it and the fans didn't care cause they 
hear it anyway. too much screaming. and they did only perform for like 20-30

But basically, they just didn't like the live concert experience, right?  
Otherwise they'd have looked around (as The Who did) for solutions to the 
sudden needs that playing to larger crowds created.
