The Beatles gave two concerts at the Odeon Cinema in Glasgow, Scotland, on this evening.
Prior to the concerts they were interviewed at the Roman Camp hotel in Callander, Perthshire, where they had stayed the night before, by a BBC Scotland camera crew. The interviewer was Evelyn Elliot, and the report was shown that evening on the BBC 1 news show Six Ten.
That afternoon they also visited Glasgow’s Theatre Royal studios, to record a contribution for the Scottish Television show Roundup. They chatted to hosts Morag Hood and Paul Young, but didn’t perform. The show was first broadcast on STV from 5pm on 5 May 1964.

sadly another cinema which was closed by odeon a number of years ago and after lying empty for a number of years the building was demolished but the original frontage was retained and offices are being built on the ground
So sad I worked at the odeon cinema at the box office in 1964 I did meet the Beatles I met a few stars that appeared at the odeon also Roy Orbison and a few others. The dressing rooms were very nice I also met Sean Connery he used to come in a few times with his friend Cliff Handley I think he wrote for the paper and to see the general manager mr chandler.
According to Stan Parkes, Lennon’s cousin, John didn’t stay at the Roman Camp hotel, but with Stan at his home in Currie. Apparently, the next morning, the two of them walked to the newsagent for cigarettes. The girl behind the counter fainted when she looked up and saw John Lennon, according to Stan.
This is where Trust Deed Scotland are based. I was in their office last week, it’s the old Odeon. It reminds me of the Hacienda in looks
