Paris 1965

The Beatles' final European tour in 1965 opened with a concert at the Palais des Sports in Paris. While leaving London Airport the group learned that fans had been turned away by airport authorities, who had claimed that The Beatles has asked them to stay away. This was later denied by the group and Brian Epstein. The Beatles and their entourage arrived at the Paris-Orly airport at 9.55am and were taken to the George V hotel. Around 50 fans were waiting at the hotel, far fewer than on their previous visit. They played two concerts at the Palais des Sports, at 3pm and 9pm, each of which was seen by 6,000 people.
