The 16th date of The Beatles’ UK tour with Roy Orbison was a return to London, with a concert at the Granada Cinema in Woolwich.
This was the group’s only performance at the venue, which later became a bingo hall.
The Beatles’ repertoire throughout the Roy Orbison tour contained seven songs: ‘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’.
