This was The Beatles’ 43rd evening performance at the Cavern. This was also the 16th occasion on which they performed both lunchtime and evening shows at the venue.
Although the precise number of their Cavern performances is not known, The Beatles played at least 155 lunchtime and 125 evening shows at the Mathew Street venue between 9 February 1961 and 3 August 1963.
