Live: Cavern Club, Liverpool (lunchtime)

12.00pm, Friday 14 July 1961 (52 years ago)

This was the first date on which The Beatles performed both lunchtime and evening shows at Liverpool’s Cavern Club.

This lunchtime performance was The Beatles’ 15th appearance at the club, and their 14th lunchtime show. Although the precise number of their Cavern performances is not known, The Beatles played at least 155 lunchtime and 125 evening shows between 9 February 1961 and 3 August 1963.

This was also their first appearance at the venue since their return from Germany for their second Hamburg trip; their previous appearance at the Cavern had been on 24 March 1961.

In the evening they gave their second late performance at the Cavern.
