Live: Johanneshovs Isstadion, Stockholm, Sweden

This was the first of two nights of performances at the Johanneshovs Isstadion in Stockholm, Sweden. It was The Beatles' second visit to the country within a year.

The group took the 11.10am flight from London Airport to Stockholm, where more than 3,000 fans were waiting to welcome them to Sweden.

The Beatles performed two shows on each of the two nights, at 6.45pm and 10pm. Also on the bill were The Kays, The Moonlighters, The Streaplers, Jimmy Justice, The Mascots and The Shanes.

During the first show both John Lennon and Paul McCartney received electric shocks from unearthed microphones.

    It is interesting to note that this is probably only the 4th to 7th time AHDN was performed live. It´s live debut was probably in Brighton July 12. It was definitely played at Blackpool Night Out on the 19th and most likely again at the one show in Blackpool on the 26th.
