The Beatles live: Guildhall, Portsmouth

This was the 20th and penultimate date of The Beatles’ 1963 tour of England with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez. They played at the venue on one other subsequent occasion, on 3 December 1963.

The Beatles performed a setlist of six songs on 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 Beatles returned to Portsmouth’s Guildhall on one other occasion. Their concert originally scheduled for 12 November 1963 had been postponed after Paul McCartney fell ill with gastric flu, but eventually took place on 3 December that year.
