1961: Performance at the Top Ten Club, 136 Reeperbahn, Hamburg, Germany

1962: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern

1963: Live: Grafton Rooms, Liverpool

The Beatles’ third known concert at Liverpool’s Grafton Rooms had been arranged in February 1963, and was a fundraiser for the charity the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). More:Beatles Bible

1964: Live: Centennial Hall, Adelaide

The day after they landed on Australian soil, The Beatles flew from Sydney to Adelaide in a chartered Ansett ANA jet, arriving at 11.57am. An estimated 200,000 people lined the 10-mile route between Adelaide Airport and the city centre in the hope of seeing The Beatles’ motorcade. More than 30,000 surrounded the Town Hall, where they met the city’s mayor, James Campbell Irwin, along with council members and their families. The Beatles were given toy koala bears. John Lennon told the reception, “Wherever we go, anywhere in the world, this reception which Adelaide has given us will stick in our memories. The group was shadowed by local DJ Bob Francis from 5DN, who interviewed them in a range of locations including the Town Hall balcony. Francis also booked the suite next to theirs at the Southern Australia Hotel, from where he gave listeners hourly updates.

The title of this video is a little misleading. There's actually several interviews here.
Right after the balcony interview: 3:58-11:41



Over 50,000 applications had been made for tickets to see The Beatles in Adelaide’s Centennial Hall, which had just 3,000 seats. The group played two sets on this day, and two more on the following day. The compère was Alan Field, and the support acts were Sounds Incorporated, Johnny Devlin, Johnny Chester and The Phantoms. The Beatles performed the same 10 songs at all their Adelaide shows: I Saw Her Standing There, I Want To Hold Your Hand, All My Loving, She Loves You, Till There Was You, Roll Over Beethoven, Can’t Buy Me Love, This Boy, Twist And Shout and Long Tall Sally.

One of the lucky 3,000


Love the matching outfits!

Jimmy Nichol, a substitute drummer,has been playing with the Beatles since Ringo entered a London hospital with tonsillitis. Says Ms. Lee - “Ringo and I had a marvelous trip together. He is absolutely enchanting. He told me he was on his way to Australia to meet his fellow Beatles... I just can’t get used to that name (laughing). Mr. PopCulture

June 13th

1960: Live: Jacaranda Coffee Bar, Liverpool

Although he had walked out of the group before their 11 June concert at the Grosvenor Ballroom in Wallasey, drummer Tommy Moore performed one final time on this date at Allan Williams‘ Jacaranda Coffee Bar. Moore was temporarily replaced with Norman Chapman, but the line-up lasted just three weeks before Chapman began his National Service with the army. After that The Silver Beetles used various stand-ins or changed instruments within the group. Beatles Bible

This being a Monday, the Beatles played the basement room of Allan Williams Jacaranda Club.  They were not paid cash money for these appearances, but were given beans on toast (yum).  I guess they thought of these sessions as practice time.  Beatle +50 Blog

1961: Performance at the Top Ten Club, 136 Reeperbahn, Hamburg, Germany

1962: Evening performance at the Cavern Club

1963: Live: Palace Theatre Club, Stockport

The Beatles performed two concerts on this day, both in venues they hadn’t played before. The first was at the Palace Theatre Club in Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, their only performance in the town. Afterwards they drove 10 miles to their next booking, at the Southern Sporting Club in Manchester. The Beatles played for around 30 minutes, to 300 mostly screaming fans. The booking had been made prior to the success of the Please Please Me single, but was honoured by Brian Epstein despite the group being able to command much higher fees by June.

My dad used to tell me the story of how he stood outside that hall listening to The Beatles because he couldn't get in, so so so lucky  ;D ;D

1964, The Beatles arrived in Adelaide, Australia and were greeted by an estimated 250,000 fans, (the biggest welcome the band would ever receive), who lined the ten mile route from the airport to the city centre. The group gave their first four shows in Australia at the Centennial Hall, Adelaide over two nights, playing: I Saw Her Standing There, I Want To Hold Your Hand, All My Loving, She Loves You, Till There Was You, Roll Over Beethoven, Can't Buy Me Love, This Boy, Long Tall Sally and Twist And Shout. Temporary member Jimmy Nicol was standing in for Ringo on drums who was recovering from having his tonsils removed.
 
 
1965, The Beatles were included in the Queen's birthday honours list to each receive the MBE. Protests poured into Buckingham Palace, MP Hector Dupuis said 'British Royalty has put me on the same level as a bunch of vulgar numbskulls'.

June 14th

1961: Performance at the Top Ten Club, 136 Reeperbahn, Hamburg, Germany

1963: Tower Ballroom, New Brighton, Wallasey

A sensational final return to an old stomping ground-always one of The Beatles favorite venues-to play another in “The Mersey Beat Showcase” series presented by NEMS Enterprises. 1

This was their final appearance here.







Wallasey historian and author Tony Franks-Buckley wrote about this popular resort.

The New Brighton Tower & Fairground

Back before I was born New Brighton was a "Great" British Seaside Resort. It was more popular than Blackpool, offered many things to enjoy, and at one point in time had the highest tower in Britain. By the time I was born in 1981 it was all gone and as if it never existed. How did a booming leisure resort disapear virtually overnight?



A year later…

New Brighton – The Rise From The Ashes

There is once again a feel good factor about our beloved seaside resort New Brighton, something that has been missing since the day it turned into a ghost town virtually overnight in 1969. A new facelift with healthy investment has seen the phoenix rise from the ashes once more. Whilst it still holds many of the values and ideas of a Victorian Seaside Resort, it has also been given a 21stCentury facelift, ensuring that once again New Brighton is a popular seaside resort.


1964: Ringo Starr gives a press conference in Sydney, Australia

Ringo Starr arrived in Sydney on the morning of 14 June 1964, following a long flight from London Airport via San Francisco. He spent less than two hours in the city before catching a connecting flight to Melbourne, where he was reunited with the other Beatles. At the airport a press conference was held for the assembled reporters. Brian Epstein, The Beatles’ manager, was also present. More:Beatles Bible

Ringo rejoins The Beatles in Australia

After almost two weeks apart from the group due to his tonsillitis and pharyngitis, Ringo Starr finally rejoined The Beatles in Melbourne, Australia.

Meanwhile, the other three Beatles left their Adelaide hotel at 12.15 and flew to Melbourne on a chartered Ansett ANA Fokker Friendship. They were greeted by a crowd of 5,000.



Army and navy units were brought in to help control the crowds, cars were crushed, hundreds of girls fainted and over 50 people were admitted to hospital with broken bones.




After all four Beatles had been reunited they held – along with stand-in drummer Jimmie Nicol – a press conference.

Press Conference Videos




In the evening they held a party, without Nicol, until 4am.

Ringo rejoined the Beatles in Melbourne on June 14th 1964 following his ten day hospital recovery from accute tonsilitis. As Ringo Starr and Brian Epstein arrived in Melbourne, they witnessed the beginnings of the incredible gathering that would greet the other Beatles arrival later that afternoon. The car carrying Ringo and Brian pulled up to the main public entrance where 3,000 fans had already gathered. Jay Spangler

She’s still a Lady Beatle: Binny Lum’s unedited interview with The Beatles

The NFSA is celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ tour of Australia with the launch of an unedited interview with three of The Beatles recorded in London in April 1964, a couple of months before they arrived in Australia. The interviewer was Binny Lum, an Australian freelance radio and television personality known for her friendly conversational style. Previously heard in edited versions, release of the complete interview on our SoundCloud channel marks the first time the unedited recording has been made available.
Several months after the interview, Lum got the chance to meet the Beatles again during their Australian tour. Lum’s daughter Sharon Terry relates that the Beatles were apparently waiting for Lum at the Southern Cross Hotel in Melbourne, expecting a follow-up interview with her but she never received the message. There was a lot of pressure wherever they went said Sharon. Perhaps someone made sure she didn’t get the message, or maybe it simply got lost along the way, by accident. Lum did meet them again at the official press reception on 14 June at the Southern Cross Hotel in Melbourne where she posed in a photo with them.

1965: US album release: Beatles VI
The Beatles’ US label, Capitol Records, released the album Beatles VI on this day.

Recording: I’ve Just Seen A Face, I’m Down, Yesterday

Three songs were recorded on this day, the most notable of which was Paul McCartney‘s timeless classic Yesterday. More: Beatles Bible



What makes Paul’s recording of “Yesterday”, the supreme melodic ballad, all the more remarkable, is that it directly followed the taping of “I’m Down”, a quasi-soul/rock and roll song delivered by Paul in the most larynx-tearing, cord-shredding style.1

It is announced that plans to film “A Talent For Loving” as the third Beatles film have been dropped. Absolute Elsewhere

In June 1965, a brief statement was circulated to the media, the contents of which explained that plans to film A Talent For Loving in the autumn had been cancelled. The reason? As most of the movie had to be filmed on location in Spain, it was now felt that the weather would not be reliable. But wasn't that the reason Spain was chosen in the first instance? The Beatles, insisted Brian Epstein somewhat vaguely, were working on alternative plans, which would be made public at a later date. Fab Four Forever

1966: Recording: Here, There and Everywhere

The backing track for one of Paul McCartney‘s Revolver highlights, Here, There And Everywhere, was begun on this day. The session began at 7pm and finished at 2am the following morning. The Beatles recorded four takes of the basic track, after which vocal harmonies were overdubbed by McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison. These recordings remain unreleased, however, and two days later The Beatles began a remake of the song. Beatles Bible

1967: Recording: All You Need Is Love

On 18 May 1967 a contract was signed committing The Beatles to represent the BBC and Britain in a worldwide satellite broadcast on Sunday 25 June. They were to be shown performing an especially-written song: All You Need Is Love. Unable to book space at EMI Studios at short notice, the group assembled at Olympic Sound Studios in Barnes, London, on this day to record the rhythm track. They mostly used unfamiliar instruments: John Lennon played harpsichord; Paul McCartney used a double bass; George Harrison played a violin; and Ringo Starr was on drums.The Beatles recorded 33 takes, but felt that take 10 was the best. A reduction mix was then made, with all instruments copied onto track one of a new four-track tape. Beatles Bible

1974:

During a Walls and Bridges planning session at the Record Plant Studios in New York, Al Coury, Capitol Record’s head of promotions in California, informs John Lennon that he has retrieved Phil Spector’s Rock ‘n’ Roll album tapes. Capitol had handed over $90,000 to Spector in order to get them back. Absolute Elsewhere

1964: The Beatles' final two shows in Melbourne, Australia took place on this day.

This was The Beatles' last of three consecutive nights of shows in the city's Festival Hall, Each night they gave two concerts, which were enjoyed by a total of 45,000 people.

Cameras from the Australian Channel 9 recorded the sixth and final show of the Melbourne leg of the world tour. It was screened on 1 July 1964 as an hour-long special, The Beatles Sing For Shell, named after the oil company which sponsored the broadcast.

Nine of The Beatles' Melbourne performances were included in the show: I Saw Her Standing There, You Can't Do That, All My Loving, She Loves You, Till There Was You, Roll Over Beethoven, Can't Buy Me Love, Twist And Shout and Long Tall Sally. During Long Tall Sally, a male audience member rushed onto the stage to shake John Lennon's hand.

The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein had initially agreed to allow Channel 9 to show just 12 minutes of the performance. However, after watching the recording an hour after the show he had a change of heart and increased the limit to 20 minutes.

In the end 22 minutes of The Beatles were included, the rest of the hour being footage of Australian and international performers. The only song from the set not broadcast was This Boy.

The track is marked by the boosted bass guitar sound throughout, partly in response to John Lennon demanding to know why the bass on a certain Wilson Pickett record far exceeded the bass on any Beatles records. It was also cut louder than any other Beatles record, due to a new piece of equipment used in the mastering process.

1973: George Harrison started a five-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with 'Living In The Material World', his second US No.1.

1976: Paul McCartney and Wings played the last date on their Wings Over America tour at the Forum in Los Angeles.
