The Beatles’ 43rd lunchtime performance at Liverpool’s Cavern Club took place on this day.
The group’s lunchtime shows typically lasted from 12-2pm. This was their 60th known appearance overall at the soon-to-be-famous cellar venue on Mathew Street in Liverpool’s city centre.
This was The Beatles’ first Cavern performance since John Lennon and Paul McCartney took a two-week holiday in Paris. The group’s previous appearance on the club’s stage had been on 29 September 1961.
Although the precise number of The Beatles’ Cavern performances is not known, they played at least 155 lunchtime and 125 evening shows between 9 February 1961 and 3 August 1963.
