On This Day in 1958: John Lennon and Paul McCartney Play the Cavern Club for the First Time

Monday, January 24, 2022

On this day in 1958, Paul McCartney and John Lennon performed together for the first time at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.

Billed as The Quarry Men Skiffle Group, the group supported the Merseysippi Jazz Band at the historical venue, which opened its doors just one year prior to the performance and caught the emergence of the Merseybeat scene. The club quickly became world-famous, most notably due to the volume of Beatles performances that took place there between 1961 and 1963, and is now synonymous with the band. McCartney most recently visited the venue in 2018, when he played a surprise show for 250 fans.
