December 1, 1961, Tower Ballroom, New Brighton

then in Montreal, they were burning British flags and we were supposed to stay the night there and somebody...reported a death threat in the papers, directed at Ringo, so we did the concert and got on the plane and flew off. George in I Me Mine

No correct answer yet, however FPSHOT is closer to the right answer than Irene.

I believe it was the Aldershot (in Hampshire) gig, played on December 9th 1961.

Due to bad publicity only 18 people turned up.

Containing EVERY clue ever found about this conspiracy, Paul is Dead - The Conclusive Evidence will change your mind about this bizarre coverup.

This week, 'Beatles 1' is at No. 23 in the UK Album charts.
This week, 'Wingspan' is at No. 55 in the UK Album charts.

Due to poor publicity is correct. Promoter Sam Leach set this up as a "Battle Of The Bands" thing for five consecutive Saturday nights. At the Palais Ballroom in Aldershot was the site on Dec. 9, 1961.

Score:
darkhorse - 2
HMVNipper - 2
IreneBeatle - 2
Harbidge - 1
