This was the first of two visits The Beatles made to the ABC Cinema in Edinburgh, Scotland. The other took place on 19 October 1964.
This night’s two concerts, and the two on the following night in Glasgow, were jointly promoted by Brian Epstein and Albert Bonici.
The Beatles gave an interview from their dressing room at the ABC to BBC Scotland radio reporter Bill Aitkenhead. It was broadcast that evening on the Scottish News bulletin from 6.10pm.
