Mon, November 21st, 1960  The Beatles perform at the Kaiserkeller Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany. The Beatles have to play without George Harrison, who had been deported that day for being underage (17). Most likely it was Kaiserkeller owner Bruno Koschmider, wanting to get back at The Beatles for breaking their contract, who alerted the authorities that George was under age 18 and, therefore, not legally allowed to remain in a night club after midnight.

Wed, November 21st, 1962  The Beatles perform at the Cavern Club at lunchtime and then again at night. The lunchtime show was supposed to have been played by The Remo Four, but they swapped out with The Beatles, who were supposed to play on the 23rd but had an appointment in London.
