Live: St John’s Hall, Liverpool

This was The Beatles' first performance at St John's Hall on Snaefell Avenue in Tuebrook, Liverpool.

Mona Best, mother of Pete and owner of the Casbah Coffee Club, also ran some nights at St John's Hall. The Beatles were paid £20 for their appearance, a considerable sum for them at the time.

This St John's Hall shouldn't be confused with a venue of the same name in Bootle where The Beatles also performed.

The Beatles played at Liverpool's St John's Hall on 11 occasions. The other dates were 10 March; 13, 20 and 27 July; 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 August; and 8 September 1961.
