On the day their second album With The Beatles was released, the group performed the 18th date of their 1963 Autumn Tour at the Globe Cinema in Stockton-on-Tees. It was also the day that John F Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas.
Their setlist throughout the tour contained 10 songs: ‘I Saw Her Standing There’, ‘From Me To You’, ‘All My Loving’, ‘You Really Got A Hold On Me’, ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘Boys’, ‘Till There Was You’, ‘She Loves You’, ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’ and ‘Twist And Shout’.
The Beatles returned to the Globe on one subsequent occasion, 15 October 1964.

Where did The Beatles stay when they played at The Globe theatre in November, 1963? Well, we now know thanks to a regular visitor to my website. See the lower right hand column:
The glamorous Vernons Girls had then a hit titled “We Love The Beatles!”
I have heard that Jimmy Tarbuck was the compare, but the poster says it was Frank Berry . . . . . any comments?
