 On this day in 1966...

The Beatles begin their final world tour at Circus-Krone-Bau, Munich, Germany...

with lead singers appropriately noted...

  1. "Rock and Roll Music" (John Lennon)

  2. "She's a Woman" (Paul McCartney)

  3. "If I Needed Someone" (George Harrison) – the first (and only) Harrison composition the group performed live

  4. "Day Tripper" (Lennon and McCartney)

  5. "Baby's in Black" (Lennon and McCartney)

  6. "I Feel Fine" (Lennon)

  7. "Yesterday" (McCartney) – performed with all four Beatles, rather than the one guitar/string quartet arrangement by which the song was recorded, and in G major, not in F major

  8. "I Wanna Be Your Man" (Ringo Starr)

  9. "Nowhere Man" (Lennon with McCartney and Harrison)

  10. "Paperback Writer" (McCartney)

  11. "Long Tall Sally" (McCartney)
