The Beatles live: ABC Cinema, Lincoln

The Beatles performed in Lincoln on just one occasion, as part of their 1963 Autumn Tour of the UK and Ireland. It was the 23rd date of the tour, which continued until 13 December.

The Beatles' 1963 winter tour programmePrior to the concert Ringo Starr was suffering from earache, so cut short the group’s rehearsal to have his ear syringed at the local hospital.

Throughout the tour The Beatles’ setlist throughout 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’.

After the concert The Beatles were driven to a hotel near Doncaster. Their chauffeur’s driving was so erratic that upon their arrival the group telephoned Brian Epstein to demand a replacement for the rest of the tour.
