Performance at the Olympia Stadium in Detroit, USA, attended by 30,000 people, as part of their First American Tour. They played Twist And Shout, You Can’t Do That, All My Loving, She Loves You, Things We Said Today, Roll Over Beethoven, Can’t Buy Me Love, If I Fell, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Boys, A Hard Day’s Night and Long Tall Sally.

The Beatles announced that they wouldn’t play Florida unless the seating was de-segregated. Paul said: “We weren’t into prejudice. We were always very keen on mixed-race audiences. With that being our attitude, shared by all the group, we never wanted to play South Africa or any places where blacks would be separated. It wasn’t out of any goody-goody thing: we just thought, Why should you separate black people from white? That’s stupid, isn’t it?”
