On this day The Beatles gave their 96th lunchtime performance at Liverpool’s Cavern Club. It was also the 23rd occasion on which they performed both lunchtime and evening shows at the venue.
The group’s lunchtime shows typically lasted from 12-2pm. This was their 158th known appearance overall at the soon-to-be-famous cellar venue on Mathew Street in Liverpool’s city centre, including evening performances.
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.
