Following their three concerts in Gothenburg, The Beatles travelled 60 km to Borås, where they played a single show in the Borås Hallen at Bockasjogatan.
In the afternoon they spent half an hour signing records in a music store called Waidele. Thousands of fans turned up, hoping to meet The Beatles, but many were disappointed.
The group’s concert in Borås was their largest of the Sweden tour, with 2,500 people in attendance. The Beatles took to the stage at 7.30pm.
