Live: Cavern Club, Liverpool (lunchtime)

On this day The Beatles gave their 137th lunchtime performance at Liverpool's Cavern Club.

The group's lunchtime shows typically lasted from 12-2pm. This was their 242nd known appearance overall at the soon-to-be-famous cellar venue on Mathew Street in Liverpool's city centre, including the evening events.

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

Although The Beatles weren't there, in the evening Pete Best returned to the Cavern Club for a performance with his new group, Lee Curtis and the All Stars.
