December 9th



1961:


Sam Leach's first attempt at promoting a concert in the south of England ends in disaster at the Palais Ballroom, Aldershot. As he isn't known to them, the local newspaper refuses to accept his cheque for an advertisment, and as he neglects to leave his telephone number with them, his ad isn't run. The Beatles arrive at an empty hall: no-one knows the 'Battle of the Bands' is happening. A quick run round the local coffee bars asking people to come to a free dance results in an audience of 18.

I've got a copy of the poster of the 9th December Aldershot gig. Originals are priceless!

One of the guys who went with the group down to Aldershot was Terry McCann - a guy I know. I know know if any photos exist with him in there but he was talking about what happened - i.e. the group members occasionally coming off stage to go dance with one of the people who were there, and when it was empty John and Paul played football / soccer with something they found on the floor.

1963:

The Beatles' Southern Area Fan Club Concert at Wimbledon Palais. An afternoon performance, after which the Beatles sat behind the Palais bar and shook hands with all 3,000 of their SFC members. Most of them stood in an orderly line to shake hands with the group but a few girls fainted. They very soon had to stop giving autographs as the line grew too long. Some girls managed to tousle their hair or kiss their hands.

1969:

John and Yoko's Plastic Ono Supergroup play at the Peace For Christmas concert at the Lyceum Ballroom, Covent Garden, London, in aid of UNICEF. The musicians only have time for one brief rehearsal, in the afternoon, before the show. George Harrison is among the musicians in the hastily-assembled group: the first time he and John have appeared in concert together since August 1966. The other members of the line-up are Eric Clapton, Delaney and Bonnie, Alan White, Bobby Keyes, Keith Moon, Klaus Voormann, Jim Gordon and Billy Preston. They perform extended versions of Cold Turkey and Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In the Snow). The entire show is recorded and part of their set is released on John and Yoko's 1972 double album Sometime In New York City.

1967:

A fancy dress party is held for the complete crew of Magical Mystery Tour including all the technical staff, plus relatives and a few friends. Robert Morley was Father Christmas and The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band played. Paul and Jane arrived as a Cockney Pearly King and Queen, Ringo as a Regency dandy, George as a Cavalier and John dressed as a teddy boy. John paid close attention to Patti during the party, until being reminded by fellow guest Lulu that he was supposed to be escorting his own wife for the evening.

Wow, I would have never known that happened years ago before I was born on my Birthday.

I learn something new every time I look at this Beatlelinks Beatles Calendar.
