Live: Dublin

On November 7th 1963, the Beatles flew from London to Dublin Airport as part of their 1963 Autumn Tour. They played two shows at the Adelphi Cinema in Dublin. This was the only date the Beatles played in the Republic of Ireland.

Both shows at the Adelphi were watched by 2,304 screaming Irish fans. By all accounts Beatlemania was in full swing in Dublin with girls fainting and rioting outside.

The band stayed at the Gresham Hotel on O'Connell Street and traveled the next day to Belfast.

"Dublin was fantastic. The fans there really do go mad. Girls who fainted in the crowds outside the theatre were carried into their seats by attendants. Outside there was the biggest riot yet. It's a fact that cars were overturned and the police had to make several arrests. Inside it was incredible for noise and appreciation."
