The Beatles live: Cassanova Club, Liverpool

This was The Beatles’ fifth performance at the Cassanova Club, promoted by Sam R Leach. The date was rescheduled from 18 February, when The Beatles had originally been booked to perform.

The Cassanova Club was situated above Sampson & Barlow’s Restaurant at 39 London Road, Liverpool. The club was previously sited in The Temple, Dale Street, Liverpool, but moved to this location on 9 February 1961.

The Beatles played at the Cassanova Club on seven occasions. The other dates were 11, 14, 16 and 21 February, and 7 and 12 March 1961.

The Beatles had performed at the Cassanova on the date of the original venue’s opening (date unknown), but Ray McFall, owner of the Cavern Club, told them they were not allowed to play at both venues. The restriction was later lifted, and The Beatles played many times at events promoted by Sam Leach.

After this show they gave another performance at Litherland Town Hall, Liverpool.
