The Beatles in Blokker

In June 1964 The Beatles played a concert at Blokker, near Hoorn in The Netherlands. I’m not sure if this was their only concert in Holland, but I’m pretty confident it was the only one in West Friesland.

A monument marks the site and the occasion.

Closer up you can see (short) setlist.

A note on the side of the monument says, ‘The Beatles live in Blokker – 6 Juni 1964 – Jimmie Nicol stood in for drummer Ringo Starr’. The building they played in is shown below.

  1. Leuke site!. Er zijn nog weinig goede sites over dit onderwerp te vinden.
    Ben blij met jullie post!
    Ik kan helaas geen bookmark aanmaken naar in Firefox. :( Weten jullie hoe dit komt?

    Groetjes Barbara

    • Thanks for your kind comments.

      The simplest way to bookmark a site in Firefox is to click the star icon at the end of the address bar at the top of the browser. Click it a second time to choose a folder to store it in (e.g. the Bookmarks Toolbar).
