Live: Empire Theatre, Liverpool

8.00pm, Sunday 26 May 1963 (50 years ago)

The eighth date of The Beatles’ UK tour with Roy Orbison was a homecoming show at Liverpool’s Empire Theatre.

The group hadn’t performed in the city for over six weeks; an unusual turn of events, but a taste of things to come. As they became more popular and the tour dates were spread further across the world, it became less common for The Beatles to appear in Liverpool.

They performed seven songs at the Empire Theatre: Some Other Guy, Do You Want To Know A Secret, Love Me Do, From Me To You, Please Please Me, I Saw Her Standing There and Twist And Shout.
