The Last Tower

June 14, 1963

Another in a string of "lasts".  Today, the Beatles play the Tower Ballroom in New Brighton for the last time.  The Tower was a key to the Beatles early success when local promoter Sam Leach booked them into some of his "Operation Big Beat" shows there, starting back on November 10th 1961, when they were still a gang of leather clad toughs.  :)
