Live: Cirkus, Gothenburg, Sweden

The Beatles performed three shows in Gothenburg on this day, at 3pm, 5pm and 8pm. They took place at the Cirkus venue in the Lorensbergsparken district.

The group made the 500km journey from Stockholm in a single car, with their equipment in another. They checked in to the Park Avenue Hotel in the centre of Gothenburg.

The support acts for the Cirkus shows were Swedish group Trio Me Bumba, and English group Ken Levy and The Phantoms. The Beatles’ performed nine songs: Long Tall Sally, Please Please Me, I Saw Her Standing There, From Me To You, A Taste Of Honey, Chains, Boys, She Loves You and Twist And Shout.

The Cirkus building was demolished in 1969, and a parking lot now stands on the site. Lorensberg Park itself is now a city block.
