The Beatles live: King’s Hall, Belfast

2 November 1964 was to have been a rest day in The Beatles’ 1964 British tour, but a late booking was made by promoter Arthur Howes for two shows at the King’s Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The Beatles flew from London to Aldergrove Airport in the afternoon. For their concerts that evening they performed 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’. They flew back to London the next day.

This was The Beatles’ second and final visit to Northern Ireland. They had performed at the city’s Ritz Cinema on 8 November 1963.
