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.
