Pop group The Beatles play their first concert in Indra Club, Grosse Freiheit 64, Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany.

The tired and hungry band played to just a handful of spectators, mainly prostitutes and their clients. They also had to turn down their amplifiers following a complaint from the woman who lived above the venue. Nervous of the unfamiliar surroundings The Beatles played the entire four and a half hour opening show, huddled together and standing stock still.
