Live: St John’s Hall, Liverpool

This was The Beatles’ third 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 venue shouldn’t be confused with a hall in Bootle of the same name where The Beatles also performed.

The Beatles had returned to Liverpool from Hamburg on 2 and 3 July, and had a well-deserved break from 4-12 July. This was their first live engagement since leaving Germany.

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