Live: Star-Club, Hamburg

7.00pm, Friday 13 April 1962 (52 years ago)

This date was The Beatles’ first at Hamburg‘s Star-Club, the city’s newest rock ‘n’ roll venue.

The group spent the following seven weeks performing at the venue, notching up 172 hours of stage time over 48 nights. They finished their stint on 31 May 1962, and left Hamburg on Saturday 2 June.

It was The Beatles’ third residency in Hamburg within two years, but wouldn’t be their last; they returned two more times to the Star-Club before the end of 1962.
