This was the 52nd night of The Beatles’ residency at the Kaiserkeller club in Hamburg, Germany. It was also Pete Best’s 19th birthday.
The Beatles played for a total of 56 nights at the Kaiserkeller, which was situated at 36 Große Freiheit, Hamburg. They shared a bill with another Liverpool group, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, playing alternative shifts through the night.
The residency ended after Paul McCartney and Pete Best were arrested on 29 November 1960.
