12 October 1962 - Friday
The Tower Ballroom
New Brighton
Photographer: Les Chadwick for Mersey Beat

The Beatles were thrilled to be second on the bill to their idol Little Richard.


NOTE: I've had this photo placed on this date based on a reference in
Andy Babiuk's book, Beatles' Gear. However, closer observation indicates
this photo is not 12 October. Simple... Ringo's hair is not as long as in the
other photos. Research on the photo is currently being done. I'll redate it
once a more definitive conclusion is determined.
