Without a concert scheduled for this day, The Beatles rested at their rented house at 356 St Pierre Road, Bel Air, Los Angeles.
Although their location was known by many fans, John Lennon, Neil Aspinall and Derek Taylor managed to leave the house for a few hours, but their impromptu outing came to an end when Lennon was recognised.
In the afternoon they attended a party at the Bel Air home of Alan Livingston, president of Capitol Records. Tickets for the party, held in aid of the Haemophilia Foundation of Southern California, cost $25 tickets, and the event raised $10,000.
