**1960 - The Beatles perform at the Indra Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany.
**1961 - The Beatles perform a lunchtime show at the Cavern Club, Liverpool, and a night show at Litherland Town Hall, Liverpool. A capacity crowd shows up at Litherland Town Hall to hear The Beatles, Gerry & the Pacemakers, and Rory Storm & the Hurricanes, all for the admission price of only 3 shillings (15 pence).
**1962 - The Beatles perform at the Tower Ballroom, New Brighton, Wallasey. Five groups appear in celebration of Rory Storm's birthday.
**1964 - The Beatles, their first American tour now history, fly back to England. One thing that had appalled The Beatles at several of the US concerts was the wheeling of disabled persons into The Beatles' dressing rooms to meet them and receive their magical touch. To The Beatles, their tour consisted of a blur of newsmen, policemen, flight crews, local officials and social climbers, disabled fans, promoters, and the great faceless, screaming mass of their audience. The personal interaction with their fans that they so treasured was gone, and the constant tension that surrounded them was barely endurable. In Las Vegas they'd had to play under the pall of a bomb threat. An astrologer predicted that The Beatles' plane would crash en route from Philadelphia to Indianapolis, with no survivors. Also, tour-hopping from city to city was not a big problem in Britain, but crisscrossing the wide expanses of the USA proved to be a real strain. The next tour would be planned with a great deal more care.
**1976 - Wings performs a concert in Zagreb, Yugoslavia.
**1987 - US re-release of Beatles album "Magical Mystery Tour" on CD (Capitol). The entire CD is in stereo. The original 1967 vinyl LP included three songs in "electronically reprocessed" (that is,fake) stereo: "Penny Lane", "Baby, You're a Rich Man", and "All You Need is Love".
**1987 - UK re-release of Beatles album "Magical Mystery Tour" on CD (EMI). All songs in stereo; on the original US and UK vinyl LPs, three of the songs ("Penny Lane", "Baby You're a Rich Man", and "All You Need is Love") were heard in "electronically reprocessed" (fake) stereo. Only a German release of the album and a UK cassette release were previously all-stereo.
*Why wasn't MMT included in the US Albums box set? It was all a Capitol Records creation, fleshing out the Brit EP with the best of '67.
MMT was later released (1976) in the UK with the exact same track list. It is the only US album that was released on CD in 1987, when the first Beatles CDs were made available.
