Well it's March 3 over here so I'm going to take advantage of the timezone:

1961: Performance at St John's Hall, Bootle, Lancashire.

1962: Performance at The Cavern and the boys are released from their 1961 recording contract by Bert Kaempfert at Brian Epstein's request.

1963: The last show on the Helen Shapiro tour. Gaumont Cinema, Hanley in Staffordshire.

1964: Filming AHDN on location between London and Minehead.

I'll leave it at that so you sneaky little people can do your cheating for the rest of the dates. There will probably be some different ones for '61-'64 because I did these ones the honest way....

That would be a bummer, wouldn't it. Luckily for him though I'm sure he's only had to input all the information (dates, events, etc) once, and it's all been set to show up on whatever date it is listed for... so it'll just keep repeating itself year after year.

Yeah, but he'd still have to type all that for all 365 days of the year to make it be on his site! It's a cool site though. It was worth it. I think he's the same guy who made the Beatle portfolio stuff too. Those are real cool too. They have a lot of good facts and info.

You all are so copying and pasting... There's no way you could know a thing like that, because there isn't a Beatle book that mentions Chile at all, except the ones that are written by chilean people (and I think that site's webmaster is some guy called Victor Muñoz, who's, guess what, a chilean guy )

I was going to ask that in the trivia forum.
You didn't let me... But I quickly forgive you.
