The Beatles live: ABC Cinema, Hull

This was the seventh date of The Beatles’ 1964 British tour. It was also the second and final time they performed at Hull’s ABC Cinema, following their concert almost a year earlier on 24 November 1963.

The Beatles performed two concerts, for which they were paid £850. Their set throughout the tour contained 10 songs: ‘Twist And Shout’, ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’, ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’, ‘Things We Said Today’, ‘I’m Happy Just To Dance With You’, ‘I Should Have Known Better’, ‘If I Fell’, ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’, ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘Long Tall Sally’.

The support acts on the tour were The Rustiks, Sounds Incorporated, Michael Haslam, The Remo Four, Tommy Quickly and Mary Wells, and the compère was Bob Bain. The evening’s two shows began at 6.15pm and 8.30pm.

The Beatles had a short break from touring after this night, resuming on 19 October in Edinburgh. Hull’s ABC Cinema, meanwhile, was demolished in 2004 as part of the regeneration of the city’s Ferensway area.
