The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: June 26, 1965 (Saturday)

Following their two concerts in Milan, The Beatles were driven in four cars to Genoa, Italy by the Alfa Romeo Racing Team.

The group performed two shows at the city's Palazzo dello Sport, a 25,000-seat arena, at 4.30pm and 9.30pm. As in Milan, tickets for the afternoon appearance sold poorly, with just 5,000 fans seeing The Beatles play; the evening show was seen by 10,000.

The group performed 12 songs during both shows in Genoa: Twist And Shout, She's A Woman, I'm A Loser, Can't Buy Me Love, Baby's In Black, I Wanna Be Your Man, A Hard Day's Night, Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby, Rock And Roll Music, I Feel Fine, Ticket To Ride and Long Tall Sally. 

The Beatles remained in Genoa for just a short time. Immediately after the second show they flew to Rome in a chartered aeroplane.
