The Beatles - A Day in The Life: July 23, 1964 (Thursday)

London Palladium, London

A special midnight revue, The Night Of A Hundred Star, in aid of the "Combined Theatrical Charities Appeals Council", featuring an array of illustrious names from all walks of show business (Sir Laurence Olivier and Judy Garland, to name but two). Representing "Pop Music", the Beatles acted out a flying ballet sketch (I'm Flying) in part one of the show, which necessitated them being winched up high above the stage, and performed a brief musical set in part two.
