    I’m not sure of the location of this venue – or even if it is/was on the Rue Louis Guerin (that’s where most reference books have it).

    Google Maps suggests it’s elsewhere, on Rue Audibert et Lavirotte, but that seems to be an industrial park nowadays. Could someone who knows the area please help out with the location?

    I was here, by chance … The name of the place where The Beatles came is named ”Palais d’hiver”. The most important hall of music during sixties.It was in an industrial area, you’re right.

    As I didn’t come back on this page, I see your answer very lately…
    And I wonder… How ?… 
    …And I’ve eventually found a magazine about the 60s where the concert is commented, with the terms “l’unique, le seul…” (the only…) And I can scan these pages if you wish…
    But how can I send them to you ?

      Don’t worry, my French isn’t very good nowadays so I probably wouldn’t be able to read it! I’ll take your word for it and change the page.

      I found a poster which doesn’t specify two shows, so it’s more likely there was just one, but if any tickets for an early concert do emerge I’ll probably have to conclude that two did take place. Thanks for your help.
