Friday 23 August 1963

Live: Gaumont Cinema, Bournemouth

This was the fifth of The Beatles’ six consecutive dates in the English seaside town of Bournemouth. They played two houses on each night. Also on the bill were Tommy Quickly and Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas.

UK single release: She Loves You

In case there was any doubt that The Beatles were a bona fide UK phenomenon by August 1963, the release of their fourth single went beyond all expectations.
