Following their second residency in Hamburg, at the Top Ten Club, The Beatles travelled back to Liverpool on 2 and 3 July.
The trip was more successful than their first, and they left Germany with no arrests or deportations. They performed at the Top Ten Club on Hamburg's infamous Reeperbahn from 1 April to 1 July 1961, their lengthiest residency in the city.
The group gave themselves a well-earned holiday from 4-12 July. Their next live performance was on 13 July at St John's Hall in Tuebrook, Liverpool.
