Live: Cavern Club, Liverpool (lunchtime)

The Beatles gave their 70th lunchtime performance at Liverpool's Cavern Club on this day.

The group's lunchtime shows in the Cavern typically lasted from 12-2pm. Overall this was their 109th appearance at the Mathew Street cellar club, including their late-night shows.

Although the precise number of their Cavern performances is not known, The Beatles played at least 155 lunchtime and 125 evening shows at the Mathew Street venue between 9 February 1961 and 3 August 1963.

    Not the perfect place for this comment, but as the date is right, I just wondered why there is no mention in the history that this day saw the UK release of the first record to credit The Beatles – My Bonnie/The Saints (Polydor NH 66833) credited to Tony Sheridan & The Beatles.

    Though not really a Beatles record, it would have been a huge event to them, being the first release to feature them under their own name, and in their own country. Surely a major milestone for them that deserves an entry!
