The Beatles performed two shows on this day at the Teatro Adriano in Piazza Cavour in Rome, and two more on the following day. It was the group's only visit to the Italian capital.
The concerts took place on each of the days at 4.30pm and 9.30pm. Originally just this day's performances had been booked, but the next day's were added later on. Despite this, none of The Beatles' four Rome shows was more than half full.
Parts of both this day's performances, recorded by members of the audience, have been circulated on bootlegs, although the quality is less than perfect.
After the second show Paul McCartney met playwright Noël Coward, who had attended the concert. The encounter took place at the Parco dei Principi hotel.
