The Beatles had a rare day off on 6 June, but resumed the Roy Orbison tour the following day with a concert at the Odeon Cinema in Glasgow, Scotland.
This was The Beatles’ first concert in Glasgow. They quickly warmed to the enthusiastic reception from the fans, and always enjoyed their four subsequent visits to the city – three of which were also at the Odeon.
The Beatles performed the same seven-song set throughout the Roy Orbison 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’.
