BEATLES – Day By Day – 10/28/62

Sunday, 28th October, 1962

The Beatles biggest gig in their career to date. The Fab Four once more joined Little Richard on the bill, this time at Liverpool’s top venue, the famous Empire Theater. This was their first appearence at the venue other than a couple of talent show auditions in the formative Quarry Men days, and once as a trio under the name Johnny & The Moondogs. (Check out Before They Were Beatles for more on those auditions.)

This time they were part of an international eight-act show. Along with Little Richard they shared the bill with Craig Douglas (who they also provided backing for), Jet Harris, Kenny Lynch and Sounds Incorporated.

As far as their local fans were concerned, playing The Empire meant The Beatles had hit the big time.

 A few hours before the Empire show, Brian Epstein to the home of top promoter Arthur Howes and somehow amanges to provisonally book The Beatles a place on the Helen Shapiro tour that Howes is arranging for February of the following year.
