As with the previous night’s show in Bedford, John Lennon was unable to perform due to illness, so The Beatles took to the stage as a three-piece.
This was The Beatles’ second concert at York’s Rialto Theatre with a month; they had previously played there on 27 February as part of the Helen Shapiro tour. This time they appeared on the same bill as Tommy Roe and Chris Montez.
