The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: December 11, 1965 (Saturday)

Astoria Cinema, Finsbury Park, London

The Beatles' final two London concerts took place before hugely enthusiastic audiences.

George Harrison commented: This is one of the most incredible shows we've done. Not just because of the audience, but because they're Londoners. This is the funny thing. It's always been the other way round - fantastic in the North but just that little bit cool in London. It's incredible. It seems like the Beatlemania thing is happening all over again.

Eleven songs were played, the same as on the other dates of the concert: I Feel Fine, She's A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Act Naturally, Nowhere Man, Baby's In Black, Help!, We Can Work It Out, Yesterday, Day Tripper and I'm Down.
