The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Saturday, March 9, 1963

Granada Cinema, Barking Rd. East Ham, London

Five days after concluding the Helen Shapiro tour, five days in which they had fulfilled three live engagements, a recording session for EMI and a radio session for the BBC - the Beatles set off going around a still-snowbound Britain on a second theater package tour. Top billing this time was shared by two American individuals, Tommy Roe and Chris Montez, although both were very quickly superseded-on the first "house" of the first night, in fact by the increasingly all conquering Beatles.

Their repertoire on this tour was "Love me do", "Misery", "A taste of honey", "Do you want to know a secret", "Please please me" and "I saw her standing there".
