Having missed three concerts due to illness, John Lennon was well enough to rejoin The Beatles onstage for both sets at Bristol’s Colston Hall.
The Beatles performed a standard setlist of six songs throughout this tour, in which they appeared on a bill with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez. The songs were: ‘Love Me Do’, ‘Misery’, ‘A Taste Of Honey’, ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret’, ‘Please Please Me’ and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.
