Tue, October 25th, 1960  The Beatles perform at the Kaiserkeller Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.
Wed, October 25th, 1961  The Beatles perform a night show at the Cavern Club, Liverpool.
Thu, October 25th, 1962  The Beatles go to Playhouse Theatre, Manchester, for their third taped appearance on the BBC radio Light Program show "Here We Go". The Beatles perform three songs in front of a live audience: "Love Me Do", "A Taste of Honey", and "P.S. I Love You". The program is broadcast the next day, October 26.
Fri, October 25th, 1963  The Beatles begin their tour of Sweden by playing two shows at Nya Aulan, Sundstavagen, Karlstad, Sweden. Their repertoire for the tour is "Long Tall Sally", "Please Please Me", "I Saw Her Standing There", "From Me to You", "A Taste of Honey", "Chains", "Boys", "She Loves You", and "Twist and Shout". Beatlemania is present in full force, so The Beatles play to enthusiastic, screaming fans. The local pop reviewer was not impressed, though. He considers The Beatles' music to be awful, and he suggests that The Beatles should be grateful to their screaming fans for drowning out the group's terrible performance. The reviewer went on to say that The Beatles "...were of no musical importance whatsoever and that their local support group, The Phantoms, decidedly outshone them" (Lewisohn).
