The Beatles Live at the Circus-Krone-Bau, Munich Germany

The Beatles' evening concert show at the Circur-Krone-Bau on June 24 1966 was recorded on video and was re-played a few weeks later on July  05 1966 on ZDF television. The television special was entitled "Die Beatles". It also featured songs from some of the opening acts as well as silent footage.
The set list for this show was featured in edited form with a little over half of it shown on television and bits of pieces of other songs. The tunes featured in the film include: "Rock And Roll Music", "She's A Woman/Baby's In Black", "I Feel Fine", "Yesterday", "Nowhere Man" and an edited version of "I'm Down" (different from the previously mentioned version from the last post).
"Nowhere Man" was eventually commercially released as a video on the Apple documentary "Anthology" series showing the opening of the song. The Beatles would be a little rusty at the live shows of 1966 and no music from the "Revolver" LP (which was to be released in August) was played at the shows with the exception of the single "Paperback Writer".
The audio from the show can be found on CD bootlegs "Atlanta, Munich, Seattle" and "Beatles' 66: Munich/San Francisco".
Here's a clip of the Beatles' musical portion on youtube:
