Live: Rialto Theatre, York

8.00pm, Wednesday 13 March 1963 (51 years ago)

As with the previous night’s show in Bedford, John Lennon was unable to perform due to illness, so The Beatles took to the stage as a three-piece.

This was The Beatles’ second concert at York’s Rialto Theatre with a month; they had previously played there on 27 February as part of the Helen Shapiro tour. This time they appeared on the same bill as Tommy Roe and Chris Montez.

The Beatles performed six songs: Love Me Do, Misery, A Taste Of Honey, Do You Want To Know A Secret, Please Please Me and I Saw Her Standing There.

The group returned to the Rialto on two other occasions: 29 May and 27 November 1963.
