The Beatles and the Rolling Stones performed on the same bill on September 15, 1963 at the Royal Albert Hall in London (the entire program featured 11 acts). In addition to playing at the same show (the only time this occurred), the two groups did a photo shoot on the steps outside the rear of the hall. Paul McCartney later recalled: "Standing up on those steps behind the Albert Hall in our new gear, the smart trousers, the rolled collar. Up there with the Rolling Stones we were thinking, "This is it - London! The Albert Hall! We felt like gods!"
