Below are some images from The Beatles in Urmston concert where the band played in front of 3500 at Chassen Park. Asked to perform a Beatles cover version to celebrate the 50 year anniversary, the band performed Hey Bulldog. Who let the dogs out? Woof woof!
On August 10th 2013 The Rainband will play their hometown of Urmston, celebrating 50 years of one of the most talked about concerts in the region.
On August 5th 1963 The Beatles performed at Abbotsfield Park headlining the annual Urmston Show during the Bank Holiday weekend. By the time of their appearance The Beatles had hit number one globally with “Please Please Me” (released 11.01.63) and “From Me To You” (11.04.63). Beatlemania was peaking and the band were in huge demand.
They were just two weeks away from releasing “She Loves You” – If Urmston wasn’t the first live public performance of this eponymous song then it was certainly one of the very first. During this years celebrations at the very location of this historic event The Rainband support what many consider the greatest tribute band to the Fab Four, The Bootleg Beatles and a host of other major 60’s acts such as Herman’s Hermits and The Tremeloes.
Below is the original ticket from the day!
