About

From The Beatles Bible:

The Beatles’ first Canadian concert took place in front of 20,261 fans at the Empire Stadium in Vancouver.

The show began at 8.15pm and The Beatles took to the stage at 9.25pm. The support acts were, in order of appearance, The Bill Black Combo, the Exciters, The Righteous Brothers and Jackie DeShannon. […]

The group’s performance was broadcast live by local radio station CKNW. After their performance they ran from the stage to their waiting limousine and were driven from the stadium, accompanied by motorcycle outriders, less than a minute after they stopped playing.

The Beatles were taken straight to Vancouver International Airport, from where they flew straight to Los Angeles. They arrived in the city at 3.55am.
