Performance at Ernst Merck Halle in Hamburg, West Germany, as part of their Tour of Germany and Japan. They played Rock And Roll Music, She’s A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Day Tripper, Baby’s In Black, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, I Wanna Be Your Man, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer and I’m Down.

The tour arrived in Hamburg – the first time that they’d been back since 1963. Astrid Kirchherr and the blonde barmaid from The Star-Club were back-stage. Paul even managed to pop into the Indra and met Bert Kaempfert – who signed them up in ’61 for the Tony Sheridan session. After all the fuss had died down they went for a stroll down the Reeperbahn, reliving their old memories. is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
