That Was the Week That Was

June 3-9,1963

A typical week in the life of the Beatles now, everyday a different venue, sometimes hundreds of miles apart.  Life on the road, writ large.  Pity that little Comer van, and Niel Aspinall, too.

Monday - Granada Cinema, London
Tuesday - Town Hall, Birmingham, Warwickshire (118 Miles)
Wednesday - Odeon Cinema, Leeds, Yorkshire (120 Miles)
Thursday - DAY OFF!!!
Friday - Odeon Cinema, Glasgow, Scotland (219 Miles)
Saturday - City Hall, Newcastle-upon-Tyne (151 Miles)
Sunday - King George's Hall, Blackburn, Lancashire (125 Miles)

And, that's the last of the Roy Orbison tour.  Next week, same as last week.  "A train and a room, and a car and a room, and a room and a room."

Bye, Roy.  See you somewhere down the road someday.
