The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: December 5, 1965 (Sunday)

Empire Theatre, Liverpool

The Beatle's last Liverpool concert. Forty thousand ticket applications were received for the two "houses", although the Empire could accommadate only 2550 for each leaving many fans disappointed. It was the sixth occasion that the group had visited the venue.

The group invited many friends and relatives to see their performance. During the second show, Paul briefly joined one of the support acts, the Koobas, playing drums during their version of "Dizzy Miss Lizzy".
