Yes, @50yearslate. Taken backstage at the Tower Ballroom, New Brighton, probably on 10 November 1961 at Operation Big Beat when Rory Storm & The Hurricanes were on the same bill (along with three other bands), though it could be from one of their 4 December appearances there.

Correct date for the picture is 24 November 1961, Operation Big Beat II, I missed that date when I was looking at Tower Ballroom dates.

Confirmation from George's twitter:

I've been reading back through this thread and came across this post from @trcanberra about whether Ringo had ever been arrested...

Has Ringo ever been arrested because I know that the other 3 have been.  

Yes, but it was a beat-up:

This was posted on a blog and I think it's fake. Posted on the 19 April 2011, from another blog, I'm wondering why I can't find a single proper news report about this arrest that would've created international headlines.

Given that it's reposted on 19 April from another blog, I'm wondering if that was someone playing with an April Fool's Day post on someone's blog.

So far as I'm concerned, without any official news organisation picking up on it, it's fake news, and Ringo has never been arrested.

Can anyone find a proper source for this rather than a couple of individual's blogs?

RN - I agree with your conclusion. I've never heard about such an incident. Think it's a crock.

Sounds like a joke to me, tbh. in the beatles-memes parts of the 'net, the "no fanmail" thing is joked about a lot.

Yeah, I looked through the post and I can tell from the third paragraph that it's a joke. So no, Ringo has never been arrested.

You can find info on the Beatles that have been arrested here though, if you're curious.
