The 14th stop on The Beatles’ UK tour with Roy Orbison was a concert at the Granada Cinema in Tooting, London. This was their only performance at this ornate cinema, which later reopened as a bingo hall.
The Beatles performed the same seven-song set throughout this tour: ‘Some Other Guy’, ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret’, ‘Love Me Do’, ‘From Me To You’, ‘Please Please Me’, ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ and ‘Twist And Shout’.
