This was the final date of The Beatles’ second residency at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany. The club was situated on Große Freiheit off the Reeperbahn.
During this trip they performed for a total of 49 hours on stage. The residency began on 1 November 1962 and ended 14 days later on this date.
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.
