The Beatles performed two shows on this day at the Queen’s Hall in Widnes – their fifth and final appearance at the venue.
The concerts were promoted by Brian Epstein’s NEMS company. Tickets for both the ‘houses’ sold out well in advance.
The Beatles played in Widnes a total of five times, each one at Queen’s Hall. The other dates were 3, 10 and 17 September 1962, and 22 October 1962.
