Event Description

It was little wonder then that, just as the Beatles found with their first German trip, their stamina and musical versatility improved dramatically as the visit wore on. When they returned to Liverpool in July they were simply untouchable. The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 42

The club was owned by Peter Eckhorn, who paid each of The Beatles 35DM (£3) per day. They were required to play from 7pm until 2am each weekday, and until 3am on weekends, with a 15-minute break in each hour.
