I think I am going senile as I went to a Beatles concert in Walthamstow that isn’t listed! It 100% must have been any time/year after autumn 1965. I think Gerry and the Pacemakers backed them and a young female possibly Louise. Help!
I was there. It was my 12th birthday. Had my Beatle haircut and Beatle jacket (which was second hand and too small for me. Couldn’t hear much, but a fantastic atmosphere!
