The headliner of The Beatles’ first UK tour, Helen Shapiro, was ill for a second consecutive day, and so didn’t perform on this day.
In her place at the top of the bill was Danny Williams. Billie Davis also appeared for a second night to fill the show’s line-up.
The Rialto opened on 25 November 1935. It had 1,800 seats and was used as a cinema until 1961. The venue closed in 2002 and was demolished to make way for a bingo hall car park.
