The Royal Variety Show

A very famous show took place on November 04 1963 from the Prince of Whales Theatre in London. The Beatles performed live and featuring four songs. The audience included the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.
The first song performed is "From Me To You"; an original A-side single that went number one earlier in 1963. This is followed by the latest single "She Loves You" ; another number one. The third number is a slow one featuring "Till There Was You" which would be released on the second LP later in the month. A joke by Paul is made in the introduction about "Sophie Tucker". Some great guitar playing by George on this one. The last number is the last song on the second side of the first LP, The Isley Brothers cover "Twist And Shout". This has an introduction by John telling the audience in the cheap seats to clap their hands while the rest of them rattle their jewelry. The Beatles then take a bow and leave the stage.
This is one of the more popular shows and most of it is available commercially. The VHS/DVD of the Apple "Anthology" has most of the footage (with the exception of "She Loves You"), the Apple 3-LP/2-CD "Anthology 1" contains the soundtrack of the show (with the exception of "From Me To You") and the entire show can be heard on the bootleg CD "Mythology 1".
Below is the link for the entire performance via various sources.
