July 28, 1964 - Swedish TV

Taped: Tuesday 28 July 1964

The Beatles flew to Stockholm, Sweden, on the 11.10am flight from Heathrow Airport, London. Despite the fact that the airport was situated more than 25 miles from the centre of Stockholm, more than 3,000 fans assembled to welcome the group to Sweden.

Johanneshovs Isstadion, Stockholm, with The Kays, The Moonlighters, The Streaplers, Jimmy Justice, The Mascots and The Shanes. The group did two houses each night in the ice hockey stadium.

During one of their performances on this night, John received a minor electric shock from a stage microphone. Ringo dislodged his vocal microphone during his vocal cameo on 'I Wanna Be Your Man', forcing him to mime manfully through most of the song.

At 3:23, George smacks himself in the nose tearing up John's book!
