This was The Beatles’ third performance in Hull, Yorkshire, but their first at the ABC Cinema.
This was the 20th date of their 1963 Autumn Tour, throughout which they played a standard set of 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 once more to the ABC Cinema, on 16 October 1964. The venue was demolished in 2004 as part of the regeneration of Hull’s Ferensway area.

I queued all night for tickets to see The Beatles and wow was it worth it. The ticket box at the ABC I lathing opened early. I remember travelling home on the bus in the morning tired but elated.
It was chaotic outside the ABC, I remember police horses and huge crowds. The show was fabulous. When I went to school the next day I could hardly speak after all that screaming!
I think the concert was just after Kennedy was assassinated, the two events stick in my mind together
