The second date of The Beatles’ UK tour with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez took them to the Hippodrome Theatre in Birmingham.
Although The Beatles hadn’t been placed on the top of the bill prior to the tour, the audience reaction after the first night in London ensured that the group closed the show on this and all subsequent tour dates.
The Beatles performed a six-song setlist throughout this tour: ‘Love Me Do’, ‘Misery’, ‘A Taste Of Honey’, ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret’, ‘Please Please Me’ and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.
The group returned to the Hippodrome on other occasion, 10 November 1963, during their 1963 Autumn Tour of the UK and Ireland.
