Live: Olympia Theatre, Paris

A further two houses in The Beatles’ residency at the Olympia in Paris, France, which continued until 4 February 1964.

US single release: Please Please Me

Please Please Me had first been released as a single in America on 25 February 1963 but failed to make an impact. To cash in on the success of I Want To Hold Your Hand and in anticipation of The Beatles’ first US visit, Vee-Jay re-released the single.
