This was The Beatles first concert to be professionally organised outside the Liverpool area.
It was arranged by the club’s manager Tony Stuart. The Oasis Club, which stood on Manchester’s Lloyd Street, was owned by Kennedy Street Enterprises.
The Beatles’ setlist for the show was: ‘The Hippy Hippy Shake’, ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’, ‘The Sheik Of Araby’, September In The Rain, ‘Dizzy Miss Lizzy’, Take Good Care Of My Baby, ‘Till There Was You’, ‘Memphis, Tennessee’, What A Crazy World We Live In, ‘Like Dreamers Do’, ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’, ‘Young Blood’, ‘The Honeymoon Song’, ‘Hello Little Girl’, ‘So How Come (No One Loves Me)’, ‘Ooh! My Soul’, ‘To Know Her Is To Love Her’, ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, The Love Of The Loved, Dance/Twist In The Streets, Dream, and ‘Searchin”.
The building, which stood at 45-47 Lloyd Street, was redeveloped in the 1990s and no longer exists in the same form.
