This show was a one-off show two weeks after Please Please Me hit the number one spot. The night was squeezed in between their first tour of Britain with Helen Schapiro and their second national tour with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez. The vendor was given this poster by a doorman who worked at the Royal Hall at the time.
