Live: Iron Door Club, Liverpool

12.00pm, Sunday 15 May 1960 (53 years ago)

This was The Silver Beetles’ only known performance at the Iron Door Club on Temple Street, Liverpool. It was a lunchtime show featuring The Silver Beetles and Cass and the Cassanovas.

The club was situated at 13 Temple Street. It had opened on 9 April 1960; previously the building had been a butter packing factory.

In 1961 the venue was renamed the Liverpool Jazz Society, where The Beatles played on five occasions, all within the same month. The dates were 6, 11, 13, 15 and 17 March 1961.

The club was renamed the Storyville Jazz Club in 1962, and The Beatles played there on 1, 8 and 15 March that year. By the end of 1962 the club reverted to being known as the Iron Door Club.
