Live: Olympia Theatre, Paris
6.00pm, Thursday 23 January 1964 (50 years ago)
Another two shows at the Olympia Theatre in Paris, France, for day seven of The Beatles’ 18-date concert residency in the city.
The group’s setlist at the Olympia contained eight songs: From Me To You, Roll Over Beethoven, She Loves You, This Boy, Boys, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Twist And Shout and Long Tall Sally.
Also on this day, John Lennon and Paul McCartney recorded a basic demo of the song One And One Is Two, written for Billy J Kramer.
The recording was done in the bathroom of their suite at the George V hotel. “Billy J is finished when he gets this,” Lennon half-joked after they finished taping it.
