Live: Queen’s Hall, Leeds

8.00pm, Friday 28 June 1963 (50 years ago)

This was The Beatles’ only appearance at Leeds’ Queen’s Hall, although they did perform at the city’s Odeon Cinema on three other occasions.

The concert was seen by 3,200 people. Also on the bill was Acker Bilk and his Paramount Jazz Band. The Queen’s Hall was demolished in 1989.

    I recall going to the Beatles Queens Hall “All Night” concert as they were actually billed as the support act for Acker Bilk as Acker was on last.The earlier acts (and I think also playing after the main concert)were local bands who were finalists from the local paper’s “Battle of the Bands” competition. Also playing that night were Tony Dale and the Wanderers who rehearsed at Stainbeck Youth Club and later morphed into The Grumbleweeds. As the Queens Hall was actually an old Tram Shed,I doubt that it would have impressed the Beatles much
