The Beatles began their 1966 tour dates in Munich, Germany on June 24, 1966, just three days after finishing up with recording their Revolver album in London. The Beatles played both an afternoon and evening performance on this date, taking the stage at the Circus-Krone-Marsstrasse right after opening acts Cliff Bennett and The Rebel Rousers, The Rattles and Peter & Gordon. Portions of the evening show were broadcast for West German television and included opening act material as well as just over half of The Beatles set. On the original German broadcast tape, the first few seconds of “She’s A Woman” were spliced awkwardly onto the intro to “Baby’s In Black” and therefore appears that way here. The Beatles Anthology documentary includes a great performance of “Nowhere Man” from this same show.
