The Beatles live: Colston Hall, Bristol

The Beatles’ 1964 British tour ended on this date, with two concerts at Bristol’s Colston Hall. It was the 27th date of the tour.

They performed two concerts at the venue, 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 6.20pm and 8.45pm.

During The Beatles’ set, the group was flourbombed by four students, who hurled the flour from the rafters above the stage. The miscreants later told the press their names were Sue, Roger, Richard, and Bob.

This was The Beatles’ third and final visit to Bristol. They had previously performed at the Colston Hall on 15 March and 15 November 1963.
