This was The Beatles’ 49th evening show at the Cavern Club. It was also the 19th occasion on which they performed both lunchtime and evening shows at the venue.
They topped a bill which also featured Gerry and the Pacemakers, and Dale Roberts and the Jaywalkers. Overall this was The Beatles’ 131st appearance at the underground Mathew Street venue, including their lunchtime shows.
