The opening night of the Beatles' first nationwide tour, was at the Gaumont Cinema on New Victoria St. Bradford, Yorks.
They were the bottom of a six-act bill headed by 16 year old Londoner Helen Shapiro, who was voted Best British Female Singer in 1961 and 1962.
The Beatles' repertoire on the first night was "Chains", "Keep your hands off my baby", "A taste of honey", and "Please Please me". Two other, "Love me do" and "Beautiful Dreamer" were used during the remaining dates as prepared alternatives. :)
