Today in History: The Beatles Begin Their Final Tour
On June 24, 1966, The Beatles began their final world tour with two shows at Circus-Krone-Bau, Munich, Germany. The late show (9pm) was filmed by German television network ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen) and aired a few weeks later.
The setlist reads like a greatest hits album: “Rock And Roll Music," "She's A Woman," "If I Needed Someone," "Day Tripper," "Baby's In Black," "I Feel Fine," "Yesterday," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Nowhere Man," "Paperback Writer" and "I'm Down."
The tour included stops in West Germany, Japan, The Philippines and North America.
When the band returned home, they concentrated on studio efforts and released the landmark album “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band” in 1967.
