Live: King George’s Hall, Blackburn

8.00pm, Sunday 9 June 1963 (50 years ago)

There may or may not have been four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire, but what is known is that The Beatles performed just once in the town.

The occasion was the final date of the group’s UK tour with Roy Orbison. It had begun in Slough on 18 May 1963, and contained 21 dates altogether.

During the tour The Beatles’ repertoire consisted of seven songs: 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.

    I have a 16 page “Top Stars Special” Beatles newspaper published by the Lancashire Evening Telegraph (the local paper) dated Dec. 7th. 1963.
    Shame they waited ’til 6 months after the local performance to do a “Special”. Maybe they weren’t convinced the group would make it………!
