Performance at the Hulme Hall in Port Sunlight, Birkenhead (22:00).

The first Beatles concert with Ringo behind the drum-kit, at Hulme Hall in Birkenhead. But he didn’t enjoy it: “They loved Pete. But me, I was just a skinny, bearded scruff. Brian didn’t really like me either – he thought I didn’t have the personality. And why get a bad-looking cat when you already had a good-looking one?” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
