Live: King George’s Hall, Blackburn

There may or may not have been four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire, but what is known is that The Beatles performed just once in the town.

The occasion was the final date of the group's UK tour with Roy Orbison. It had begun in Slough on 18 May 1963, and contained 21 dates altogether.

During the tour The Beatles' repertoire consisted of 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.

Live: Pavilion, Bath
Live: City Hall, Newcastle
