The Beatles live: Concert Hall, Glasgow

The Beatles began a three-night mini tour of Scotland on this day, with a performance at the Concert Hall in Glasgow. Also on the bill were Mike Berry, and Freddy Starr and the Midnighters.

This was the group’s only concert at the venue, although they did perform elsewhere in Glasgow on four other occasions. Afterwards they stayed at the city’s Central Station Hotel.

The Concert Hall, at 625 Argyle Street, Glasgow, opened in 1899 as the Tivoli Variety Theatre. It was also known as the Gaiety Theatre, but closed and demolished in 1968.

The three Scottish dates were promoted by Albert Bonici, who had an exclusive agreement with Brian Epstein for concerts in the country.
