This was the 12th date of The Beatles’ second residency at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany, situated on Große Freiheit off the Reeperbahn.
The Beatles performed for three and a half hours each night, for which they were each paid 600DM (£53.50) a week. On occasion they shared a bill with Little Richard, whom they had performed with in Liverpool the previous month.
