During the day, two girls attempted to have themselves delivered to the venue in a large box labelled ‘Beatles fan mail’. Their efforts were thwarted by a guard in charge of checking all deliveries.

The Beatles performed their standard 12-song set: ‘Twist And Shout’, ‘You Can’t Do That’, ‘All My Loving’, ‘She Loves You’, ‘Things We Said Today’, ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’, ‘If I Fell’, ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’, ‘Boys’, ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘Long Tall Sally’.

The group stayed at the Holiday Inn after their second show. Police officers on horseback restrained the fans from storming the building.
