The Beatles' first Plymouth concert revealed in rare photos

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Rare photos have revealed a behind-the-scenes glimpse at The Beatles historic debut Plymouth concert.

One momentous day in 1963, the biggest band in the world arrived in Plymouth for the first time.

Still in their early days and sporting their trademark mop haircuts but with more relaxed suits than they had previously been known for, the Fab Four were working their way around the country on their autumn tour when they played the ABC on November 13.

It was to be the band's fourth tour of Britain within nine months, this one scheduled for six weeks. In mid-November, as 'Beatlemania' intensified, police reportedly resorted to using high-pressure water hoses to control the crowd before a concert in Plymouth.
