Munich 1966

From the "Bravo Beatles Blitztournee", here's some pristine Munich footage. Circus-Krone-Bau, Munich (Germany) - 24/6/1966
'The Beatles' 1966 World Tour' started on this day with two concerts at Circus-Krone-Bau in Munich, West Germany.
At 9pm, after their afternoon concert, the band went to the stage for a second performance: the setlist was composed by "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", "Paerback Writer" and "I'm Down" (McCartney forgot the introduction).

The show was filmed by German television network Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF), and followed a brief afternoon rehearsal set for the cameras. The footage was shown as 'Die Beatles' on channel two on Tuesday 5th July 1966.

The German leg of the tour was known as the 'Bravo Blitztournee', and was sponsored by the entertainment magazine 'Bravo'.
